In a report written by Andrew Brown at the Guardian, Rowan Williams has just resigned as the Archbishop of Canterbury, and is going to academia:
The archbishop of Canterbury, Dr Rowan Williams, is to resign and return to academia as master of Magdalene college, Cambridge.
Williams, 61, will leave at the end of December in time to start his new role next January.
