Edward Hicks: Pacifist Bishop at War
Full Product Description
The story of Edward Hicks throws a new light on the problems of conscience the First World War created. Acclaimed author G R R Evans reveals how he wrestled with the issues, yet had to watch his sons go off to fight - one not to return. Drawing upon his detailed diaries, full of indiscreet comments - the sort of thing it would now be unwise for a bishop to write in an email - Evans reveals Edward Hicks to be a man battling his own conscience and beliefs.
Hicks was also a strong supporter of votes for women, which was highly unusual at that time and a supporter of teetotalism, an contentious stance for a C of E dignitary. These were not uncontroversial matters, and for a bishop to adopt a high-profile position on them was to invite trouble.
This book provides a fascinating glimpse into the impact the War had on an individual and those around him, who waited at home, and tried to hold onto their humanity.
