Sample text

This point needs emphasis, especially when we realize that, within Anglicanism, the very notion of episcopacy is still in the process of formulation and development. It is, in fact, one key arena within which images and ideals of the notion of ‘church’ and ‘orthodoxy’ are worked out. This becomes especially clear when Anglicans engage with other denominations, as Joseph Britton (2003), for example, has shown for Anglicans and Lutherans. 18 Newman argues not for innovation but for developments grounded in a sense of history, citing Constantinople as a large and needy city in the fourth and fifth centuries.

Callum Brown, for example, refers to the 1930s and 1940s as a period when, ‘contented marriage and home, though decreasingly discussed in 1930s girls’ magazines, was still an embedded meaning, especially evident in what Tinkler classifies as mother-daughter magazines’. He argued that what, changed in the 1930s and 1940s was that contentment displaced anxiety in moral discourse. The artefacts of male temptation – drink, betting and pre-marital sex – were no longer the problem; it was discontented rather than immoral manhood which the woman had to combat in the home, and to do this she had to make the home an unremittingly happy place.

Here a long pause in the interview seemed to mark the importance of that reflection in which home, school, the military and Cambridge had united in some way in his making sense of Christianity. It was the combined influence of the dean and chaplain of his college that turned his mind to ordination. He admired these men – ‘Clever, oh how they worked together’ – one a most distinguished scholar and the other a dedicated pastor, ‘a remarkable person who would sit up till two o’clock to speak to students’ and who went on to become a bishop himself.
