This chapter describes Edward Hicks's work as a parish priest as it related to his belief that his social and political convictions arose, no less than his pastoral ministry, from his understanding of the gospel. It observes that the peculiar conditions of the appointment of residentiary canons at Manchester, imposing heavy parochial responsibilities on those who were also responsible for the cathedral, correspond with the two aspects of Hicks's understanding of the Christian faith. It observes that it demanded an unsparing personal ministry, together with responsibility in a democratic society for the conditions of communal life, and the political decisions which Hicks's believed to be right did not arise from theoretical considerations but rather they were specifically the consequences of his experience of the miseries of the poor in his parishes. It discusses Hicks's appointment to residentiary canonry, and the incumbency of St Philip's, Salford — one of the most demanding parishes with a population of over 10,000.
