Godly and Righteous, Peevish and Perverse: Clergy and Religious in Literature and Letters : an Anthology

Portada
Raymond Chapman
Canterbury Press, 2002 - 267 páginas
This anthology celebrates an enduring social figure: the holy (or not so holy) man or woman of God. They are as varied as they are numerous: they may be idle or diligent, rich or poor, adventurous, studious, corrupt, fervent, petulant, domineering, wise, foolish, loveable or detestable, ambitious or humble. The Reformation ushered in a new kind of holy man - the married priest and we see these figures at home as well as in their pulipts or about their parishes. Drawn from a thousand years of literature and letters, this is a unique and thoroughly enjoyable collection. --This text refers to an alternate Hardcover edition. Raymond Chapman is Emeritus Professor of English Literature in the University of London, a non-stipendiary priest in the diocese of Southwark and a Vice-Chairman of the Prayer Book Society. His many books include numerous literary studies and "Leading Intercessions," "Stations of the Nativity," "Stations of the Resurrection," "Days of Grace," and "A Pastoral Prayer Book." --This text refers to an alternate Hardcover edition.
