The Archdeacon of Dorset is a senior ecclesiastical officer within the Diocese of Salisbury. As such he or she is responsible for the disciplinary supervision of the clergy [1] within its five area deaneries: Blackmore Vale, Purbeck, Poole and Milton & Blandford.[2]

History[edit]

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 her 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 the Ven Stephen Waine.[5]

Some archdeacons without territorial titles are recorded from around the time of the Norman Conquest; see Archdeacon of Salisbury.
