The Victorian Clergy, Paperback / softback Book

The Victorian Clergy Paperback / softback

Part of the Routledge Library Editions: The Victorian World series


First published in 1984. The Victorian clergy occupied a uniquely prominent position in English society.

Their church generated continual and often rancorous debate and they played an important part in the local provision of education, welfare and justice.

Politically, also, they were never negligible. But, while in 1830 the clergy still constituted England's largest and wealthiest professional body, by 1914 their position was increasingly marginal.

This title examines these changes and the issues in which the clergy was facing during this transition.

The Victorian Clergy will be of particular interest to students of history.
