THE CHURCH

Dr. Temple accepted. "There are only two possible competitors," Lord Salisbury wrote. "The Bishop of Winchester has more the manners of society and the knowledge of men. ... But his health is bad, and very uncertain; he is young for an Archbishopric (only forty-eight), and he has done nothing to justify in the eyes of the public his rapid advancement, which is in consequence generally attributed to your Majesty's personal predilection for him.... On the whole, though with much misgiving, Lord Salisbury thinks that the Bishop of Winchester's previous career, and his intimacy with Archbishop Tait, give him a moral and social power in the church, which the Bishop of Peterborough does not yet possess. He is disposed therefore to advise that, after the Bishop of London, the offer be made to Bishop Davidson."(1) The Queen indignantly repudiated the allegation of her own partiality and of the Bishop's ill-health.
Some of the qualities making for promotion in the church thus become clear. That a man is a good preacher, of acknowledged piety, or of intellectual eminence is also in his favour. On the other hand, it is held against the eminent Bishop Temple that "there is a want in him, while very liberal, of dignity and refinement."(2) But a candidate is favoured because "he is moderate and a gentleman," and perhaps in that we come nearest to the mind that normally determines ecclesiastical appointment. That, in addition, political or semipolitical opinion may play some part is indicated by Bishop Davidson's opposition, unsuccessful in the outcome, to the appointment of Lord Rosebery's nominee, Dr. Percival, as his brother bishop on the ground of his views on Welsh Disestablishment.(3)
