This portrait of the last Prince Bishop of Durham, William Van Mildert, and his associates in the influential High Church Hackney Phalanx, illuminates a little-explored area of Anglican history. Drawing extensively on original correspondence, Dr. Varley outlines the perceptions of the Phalanx in the struggle they were engaged in, the vision of the Church of England that inspired them, and the part they played in the immediate post-1833 reappraisal of Church-state relations.
