About William Cosmo Gordon Lang

William Cosmo Gordon Lang (1864–1945) was a Scottish Anglican archbishop, said to have strong liberal Anglo-Catholic religious beliefs. The son of a Presbyterian minister, Lang studied at the University of Glasgow and at Oxford and was on his way to a successful career in politics and law when he received the calling to become an Anglican and seek ordination. Later in life, he was appointed as Archbishop of York at a relatively young age, rising to the second-highest position in the Church of England faster than most of his predecessors. Lang later took position as Archbishop of Canterbury.
