This chapter describes Hicks's theological capability which is evidenced by his appointment as an examiner in the Honours School of Theology at Oxford in 1888, where one of his colleagues was J. O. Johnston, the biographer of Liddon, whom he later invited to Lincoln Cathedral as Chancellor. It further conveys that for seventeen years, Hicks was a lecturer at the Scholae Episcopi in Manchester ‘to students whose only fault was their poverty’. It observes that Hicks was equally happy to quote Pusey and Liddon and to praise the witness of the Society of Friends which was enough to show that he was glad to welcome light from all possible directions.
