The Westminster CardinalsJ.Nicholas Latham, via The Good Book Stall
Archbishop Vincent Nichols may have consulted this set of biographies of his predecessors at Westminster in order to learn about their backgrounds, characters, ways of leading and ministering to the people of the Archdiocese and to the Church in England and Wales. The development of the Catholic Church and its standing today is a reflection of these ten men, with their successes, failures, influence and effect on the countries' population at large.
Necessarily, the author has to be selective in what is included; at times, there is an imbalance between the subjects' pre-Westminster years and their time in office. Also, he often goes into too much detail, at the cost of other aspects of their lives. Not all have had full scale biographies written about them (e.g. Cardinal Heenan) and the author was too early to benefit from Dr Hagerty's recent volume on Hinsley. Perhaps this collection of sketches will lead to full scale treatment for a number.
Mr Walsh describes it as 'something of an instant book' (p. vii), but this does not excuse many errors of fact and other 'typos' - they go beyond being 'inadvertent'. His reputation is let down by carelessness and / or lazy proof reading. His and his publishers' purposes would be better served by a paperback.
