The Anglican Breviary is the Anglican edition of the Divine Office translated into English, used especially by Anglicans of Anglo-Catholic churchmanship. It is based on the Roman Breviary as it existed prior to both the Second Vatican Council and the 1955 liturgical reforms of Pope Pius XII.

It contains the liturgical offices of the hours:

  • Matins or Midnight Prayer (Midnight)
  • Lauds or Dawn Prayer (Dawn)
  • Prime or Early Morning Prayer (6 a.m.)
  • Terce or Mid-Morning Prayer (9 a.m.)
  • Sext or Midday Prayer (12 noon)
