The Plain Man's Pathways to Heaven


Oxford University Press

This chapter focuses on how parishioners viewed the clergy's responsibilities. It describes the particular characteristics that parishioners commended. Parishioners had strong ideas of what a minister of the Word should be like — what was fit, and what was not. They also expected dignified behaviour from their minister, and objected to drunkenness and sexual laxity.

Keywords:   parishioners, clergy, minister, behaviour, drunkenness, sexual laxity
