Example text

Our bishops reflect a mixture of the mobile ‘hierarchs’ and more static ‘traditionalists’ but also include some who reflect Ranson, Bryman and Hinings’ third classification of ‘youth’: these were ‘hierarchs’ with strong radical theological tendencies and favoring a ‘reformed and ecumenical‘ church. These bishops match, perhaps, those who were young priests at the time of Ransom, Bryman and Hinings’ study and who maintained their attitude into older age. Irrespective of type, one of our interests concerns the move into the bishop’s house or, as we shall speak of it, the palace, a description that more clearly invests the dwelling with a distinctive ethos.

These constraints he considered to be quite significant given the fact that many were, even so, ‘financially embarrassed’. In characteristically trenchant fashion Henson even spoke of the ‘sin of simony’ as having ‘crept back in disguise’ since ‘the possession of private means tends to become an important qualification for an appointment to an English bishopric’ (1939: 144). But times have changed. Most bishops move from their prior post, usually a parish rectory, vicarage, or now from a suffragan bishop’s residence to the palace.

The ‘staff were the best English stock, yeoman stock, and somehow they were all a community’. Then, his housemaster’s view of life, ‘very much sparked by the sense of the good, and the moral imperative’, added its influence to one who was ‘a born prefect’ who then received a commission during his national service which included service abroad when he would ‘go to some length to get to church services’, something that had ‘quite surprised’ him and caused him to laugh in the interview.
