Summary note:
This book sets the work of Frank Selwyn Macaulay Bennett, Dean of Chester 1920?37, in context, and traces the influence on other cathedrals of the changes he instituted at Chester. His earlier work as parish priest and his interrelated writings on theology and on education, health, and ecumenism are examined for the light they shed on his practice. Despite the efforts of his predecessors, Bennett found Chester Cathedral in need of much repair and renovation if it were to match his ideal and fulfil the purpose he had in mind for it. In the early twentieth century Anglican cathedrals in England.
