Quick Reference


Bp. of Sodor and Man from 1698. Taking advantage of the freedom of the Manx Church from Acts of the English Parliament, he enforced discipline by his Ecclesiastical Constitutions of 1704, which inflicted public penance for slander, perjury, immorality, and other offences; their administration involved him in acrimonious legal disputes, as did his suspension of his archdeacon for heresy (1722). His devotional works long enjoyed a wide circulation.
