Overview

William Temple eventually followed his father, Frederick, to the position of archbishop of Canterbury. Like his father, he was a natural academic. He was educated at the boarding school his father had directed, and like his father, graduated from Oxford with a double first. Also like his father, William Temple went into education, spending five years as the headmaster of Repton School. He also shared his father’s vision for a united Church and cooperation between Christians. He was a member of the labour party and a fierce advocate for social justice. He was the first president of the Workers Educational Association and he believed the Church has a key role to play in bettering society.

William Temple was ordained in 1909. His 35 years of ministry spanned both world wars, during a time when a global society was a new and malleable concept. Throughout his life, William Temple wrote about the relationship of Christian faith with society, the state, philosophy, human nature, and the global community. This collection gathers many of his philosophical works discussing these subjects, including Christianity and the Social Order—advocating socialism from a Christian perspective, Christianity and the State—laying out his religious political philosophy, and his longest work, Mens Creatrix—detailing how all of mankind’s creative energies culminate in Christian revelation.
