Frederick Temple, Archbishop of Canterbury


Oxford University Press

This chapter focuses on Temple’s role as Bishop of Exeter. The standards which he set for the clergy were not chiefly about efficiency or the conscientious performance of duties. He was far more concerned that they should say their prayers, have a genuine sense of vocation, be rightly motivated, preach well, and read the scriptures intelligently. He hated the system of private patronage because it seemed to him to be a ‘traffic’ in what was not a commodity. He married Beatrice Blanche Lascelles on 24 August 1876. He was fifty-eight when his eldest son (Frederick) was born in 1879 and his other child (William) was born two years later.
