In the late 18th and 19th centuries English dioceses were large and bishops few. Most, aristocratic high churchmen, many from academia, were rarely seen in their dioceses and had little connection to the problems of industrial society. Only when Palmerston became Prime Minister in 1855 was there observable widespread reform. When he died more than half the bishops were his appointees. Most had achieved academic distinction but they also came to office with a wealth of parochial experience. This book examines the far-reaching reforms brought about in the English episcopate by these 'Good and Proper Men'.
