Yet More Controversy

Show Summary Details

Preview

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.
