Until this time Oxford and Cambridge had been recognized as the most desirable sources of Anglican clergymen, but there was to be an upsurgence oflittle-known colleges attended by lower-middle-class ordinands which cut across the assumption that the training received at the fashionable colleges was superior. Dowland discusses the official attitudes towards the innovation of training large numbers of middle-class and lower-middle-class menfor the ministry in an industrial age where a shift of power to the lower classes was widespread.

Editorial Reviews

`Dowland's book is a significant addition to the literature dealing with the Church of England in the nineteenth century ... Dowland clearly demonstrates his understanding of nineteenth century Anglican theological training, and he also handles important questions of class and status in anarticulate and scholarly fashion. This book gives another insight into the changing climate of Anglicanism from the perspective of the theological education of is clergy.'Rene Kollar, St. Vincent Archabbey, Albion, vol 31, no 1, Spring 1999
