In Pursuit of a Welsh Episcopate by Roger Lee Brown
Sorry, this product is not currently available to order


This book examines and analyses the failings of the established Church in nineteenth-century Wales to retain the allegiance of the people of Wales through the appointment of English speaking Anglo-Welsh bishops who failed to understand the character and spirituality of the Welsh people. As a result, there was an increasing demand for the appointment of Welsh-speakers as bishops for the four Welsh sees. The author considers this demand within the context of the political climate of the day and the pressures applied by a vociferous Welsh lobby. The scope of the book goes beyond the ecclesiastical history of Wales and considers the growing awareness of nationality in Wales.
