Bridget Nichols

Dr Bridget Nichols is Lay Chaplain and Research Assistant to the Bishop of Ely, the Rt Revd Stephen Conway. She grew up in South Africa, in one of the former gold-mining towns east of Johannesburg, and attended university in Cape Town, to study English and Classics. She returned to Johannesburg, and completed an MA in English at Witwatersrand University. She then travelled to England, and came to the Centre for the Study of Literature, Theology and the Arts, at the University of Durham, with a plan to write on Prayer Book collects. The subject expanded, and her doctoral research was published as Liturgical Hermeneutics: Interpreting liturgical rites in performance (Peter Lang, 1996).

She is also the author of Liturgy in Christian Perspective (DLT, 2000), and edited and contributed to The Collect in the Churches of the Reformation (SCM, 2010).

She acts as Reviews Editor for the Society for Liturgical Study's journal, Anaphora. Since 2011, she has been a member of the Liturgical Commission, and, since 2012, a member of the Academic Board of the Archbishop's Examination in Theology.
