Bishop Rowan Williams
Bishop Rowan Williams (Baron Williams of Oystermouth) is a Welsh Anglican bishop, theologian and poet. He was the 104th Archbishop of Canterbury, a position he held from December 2002 to December 2012. Previously the Bishop of Monmouth and Archbishop of Wales, Williams was the first Archbishop of Canterbury in modern times not to be appointed from within the Church of England.
Having spent much of his earlier career as an academic at the universities of Cambridge and Oxford successively, Williams speaks three languages and reads at least nine. After standing down as Archbishop, Williams took up the position of Chancellor of the University of South Wales in 2014 and served as Master of Magdalene College, Cambridge between 2013 and 2020. Now retired, Bishop Rowan is much in demand as an author and speaker.
