Show Summary Details


This chapter focuses on Temple’s role as Bishop of London. During this time he began to shift his allegiance, claiming to be ‘true’ Liberal rather than a supporter of the Liberal party. He held regular monthly sessions with his suffragans and archdeacons. He was capable of pointedly ignoring what he believed were silly or inopportune expressions of opinion but seldom allowed himself to repress honest debate. He frequently used the diocesean conference as a vehicle for expressing his own theology.
