(George Eglinton Alston; Oct 3, 1901, Woolwich, England – May 12, 1952, Nashdom Abbey) was an Anglican Benedictine monk and liturgical scholar, who was a major contributor to the revival of liturgical studies in the Church of England (Anglican Church), in which he was ordained priest in 1925. The Shape of the Liturgy, the chief scholarly book on the Eucharist (1945; 1982 with notes by Paul ¶ V. Marshall) and Treatise on the Apostolic Tradition of St. Hippolytus of Rome (1937) continue to influence Roman Catholic and Protestant studies in Christian worship.
