Foreword by His Eminence Cardinal Cormac Murphy-O'Connor This essential reference catalogues the biographical history and significant events of all Roman Catholic diocesan bishops who have been in office since the Restoration of the Catholic Hierarchy in England and Wales in 1850, and in Scotland since the Restoration in 1878. The work has developed over a number of years into a comprehensive reference guide to over 300 men, ordained in the episcopal order, who have given their life in service to the Church.

  • Description and brief history of each diocese, including coats of arms
  • Biographical details of all former and current bishops
  • Translations of the Letters Apostolic
  • Contact details of all serving bishops
  • Chronological listing of significant episcopal events
  • Indexes of titular sees and cardinal titles
Drawing on a wide variety of sources, this book will appeal to all those interested in the general history and origins of the post-Restoration Roman Catholic dioceses in Great Britain, and be of particular use to diocesan archivists and yearbook editors. It presents the information as completely, concisely and consistently as possible. As this book records the episcopal milestones of the last two hundred years, it also stands as a respectful testament to those bishops who have gone before us marked with the sign of faith, who continue to inspire and encourage their living successors in the Roman Catholic Church in Great Britain today. The names of our bishops are to be found in so many local places: in parish histories, on foundation stones, in portraits and in so many memories and retold stories. This book gathers much of that information together, bringing into one volume the briefest details of those many shepherds who have worked among the flock in these lands. Their names continue to live on, and we give thanks to God for the foundations they laid and the work they did: we continue to reap a rich harvest today from their sowing.Cardinal Cormac Murphy-O'ConnorArchbishop Emeritus of Westminster About the Author Chris Larsen was born in Croydon in 1977 and attended the John Fisher School, Purley before graduating from UWE, Bristol in 1999. For a few years, he tried a vocation to the priesthood at the Royal English College of St Alban at Valladolid in Spain and it was during this time that an interest in the diocesan history of Great Britain and its various bishops began to emerge. Since then, he has maintained a record of episcopal appointments, which has now developed into a valuable reference resource. Following his return to the UK, Chris settled in Bristol. He still enjoys to travel and has now visited every Roman Catholic cathedral around the country.


Catholic Church And The World Religions

RRP $23.99

This is an introduction to the World's major religions from a Catholic Perspective. There is no single standard textbook that outlines the official Roman Catholic theological position in relation to other religions which then explicates this orientation theologically and phenomenologically in relation to the four main religions of the world and the flowering of new religious movements in the west. The present project will cover this serious gap in the literature. After outlining the teaching of Vatican II and the magisterium since then (chapter one), each subsequent chapter will be divided equally between: an exposition of the history and features of the religion or movement being studied; and a serious theological analysis of these features, showing how these religions do have elements in common, as well as how they differ in fundamental ways from Catholicism.


Gerard Manley Hopkins And Victorian Catholicism

Although largely unknown in his lifetime, Gerard Manley Hopkins was, Jill Muller contends, the 'heart in hiding' of Victorian Catholicism. Investigations of Hopkins's spirituality have too often detached his beliefs from their local habitation in a newly industrialized, historically anti-Catholic and increasingly secular England. This book restores the poet to his full intellectual and literary context by exploring his responses to the writings of his Catholic contemporaries, and by situating the preoccupations, dramas and disappointments of his life in the wider setting of Victorian Catholic culture.
Drawing on historical and cultural studies of Victorian Catholicism, along with Hopkins's writings, Muller shows how the melancholy trajectory of the Jesuit poet's career mimics the deflation of Catholic hopes during the second half of Victoria's reign, as well as the turn within the Roman Church of England from a triumphalist rhetoric of conversion to a more introverted and insular spirituality.

When My Catholic Buttons Were Pushed

Not too long ago, I began to write letters to the editor whenever I felt the need to respond to criticism of my faith, my beliefs, my treasure, expressed in an article, column or letter to the editor. Before I knew it, I had written hundreds of these letters and had most of them published in local newspapers. There is some repetition of thoughts because these letters were not published every day. They are not scholarly treatises since I am not a theologian. You don't need to be a genius to read the teachings of the Catholic Church because they are clearly written in the Catechism. My Catechism is dog eared. Trust me. There is no question in my mind that I was guided in my efforts by the Holy Spirit to defend, explain and proclaim the teaching of the Church. I was raising my voice in words on matters that affect our lives and the common good. These are letters that represent my Catholic action. I hope you agree that words can often speak as loud as actions.
