The first Christians preserved the custom
of going to the Temple at the hour of prayer but also met
in private homes. By the close of the sixth century the organization
and content of these services, called the Divine or Daily
Office, was fully established in the Roman liturgy. The first
book of services for the Anglican Church was compiled by Thomas
Cranmer in 1549. In the United States, the prayer book of
the Episcopal Church is the Book of Common Prayer.
