This chapter details George Tyrrell's later years in Jesuit training. He expected to remain at Manresa for one or two more years for a course in classics, but he was moved straight to Stonyhurst in Lancashire to study philosophy. At St Mary's Hall, the seminary at Stonyhurst, Tyrrell's mind for the first time became thoroughly engaged. He was committed to the Catholic faith; Aquinas was the supreme teacher of Catholicism; from Aquinas he would learn. In the examination at the end of the first year he came out top. In the debates Tyrrell began to develop a reputation as a shrewd and original thinker. He could never be a docile adherent of the Catholic system.
