Yet More Controversy

Show Summary Details


This chapter details additional controversy involving Temple. With his success as headmaster at Rugby, it became inevitable that he would soon be considered for a bisphoric. In Temple’s case, his reputation as a heterodox theologian would weigh against an actual appointment. There were two important people who were anxious to ensure that consideration led to action — Tait and Gladstone — but they were on opposite sides of the most controversial issue of the late 1860s, the disestablishment of the Irish Church.
