A Radical among Liberals

Show Summary Details


This chapter points out that to describe in detail a particular liberal churchman is also to establish a point of reference from which other liberal churchmen may be more clearly understood. It defines liberalism as a word with a great variety of possible meanings, and it is not surprising that those churchmen who claimed the title of liberal for themselves frequently failed to see how the title could be applied to others from whom they differed. It describes that the life of Edward Lee Hicks touched the lives of a distinguished company of men, and a small number of women, who upheld liberal traditions in the Church of England, as well as some who might be called fellow-travellers outside its limits.
