Much appreciated Rickard.
Eliot also had a strong t on Anglo-Catholicism. His was
perhaps THE major voice for it in the Anglican Church. At
its height in the mid years between the wars, Anglo-Catholicism
comprised about 25% of the Anglican population.
WWII seeems to have made it a victim among all the others. I haven't gotten
that far is Spurr's book yet.
All thebest and happiest of this bright season.
