David Dowland presents one of the few major studies of Anglican theological training during its formative period—the nineteenth century. Nineteenth-Century Anglican Theological Training describes the innovation of training large numbers of middle-class and lower-middle-class men for the ministry, and considers the conflict between this development and the traditional ideals of the Church of England.
