In 1991, Professor Williams became bishop of Monmouth and in 1999 was elected Archbishop of Wales. Thus Archbishop Williams became Archbishop of Canterbury in late 2002 with eleven years experience as a diocesan bishop and three as a leading primate in the Anglican Communion.
Dr Williams is acknowledged internationally as an outstanding theological writer and teacher, and as an accomplished poet and translator. His interests include music, fiction and languages. However, as Archbishop his principal responsibilities are pastoral—leading by his teaching and oversight the diocese of Canterbury in particular and the Church of England in general, and guiding the global Anglican Communion.
