Merlin - I thank you so much for clarifying, for me anyway, some of the basis of what you have been asserting all along.
I had begun to see 'the coronation' as an umbrella term for a sequence of 'rites', perhaps, and just one being the most important of all of them.
However, I had forgotten about where the communion service begins and ends, and in my peeling away at it all I lost the perspective of the whole.
I concur with the unity of Sovereignty. It is that unity that makes me so interested in the whole subject.
I prefer a constitutional monarchy, over a republic, as a system of government because of the unifying characteristic for the people.
