Archdeacon of Dorset

The Archdeacon of Dorset is a senior ecclesiastical officer within the Diocese of Salisbury, England. He or she is responsible for the disciplinary supervision of the clergy[1] within the four area deaneries: Purbeck, Poole, Wimborne, and Milton & Blandford.[2]

HistoryEdit

The role of archdeacons within the diocese of Salisbury originated around the time of the Norman Conquest; the first recorded archdeacon titled Archdeacon of Dorset occurs as an officer of that diocese from the mid-12th century. The archdeaconry was transferred to the diocese of Bristol upon its creation on 4 June 1542,[3] and later returned to Salisbury diocese by Order in Council on 7 October 1836.[4]

The post is currently held by Antony MacRow-Wood.[5]
