Show Summary Details


This chapter discusses the next period of Hicks's ministry which focused attention on another and equally important aspect of the Church of England's concern with education: its response to the foundation of new universities. It observes that it was asserted that in some localities that the new universities were opposed to religious education; or that there was no concern about residential accommodation; or that their clientele was entirely local. It notes that the role of the Student Christian Movement was given great importance. It emphasizes that Hicks's experience supplied a corrective for Manchester. The chapter further notes that Owens College was founded by men of religious conviction and it made provisions for religious education, residential hostels were set up, and some students came from a distance, perhaps largely for the sake of medical training. It then states that Hicks's log book about Hulme Hall mentions no religious society among the students.
