This volume describes many of the greatest and most engaging Canons in the history of the Church of England. With a wealth of amusing detail and anecdote, as well as a skilful marshalling of the essential facts, he brings the Canons alive, and considers their significance in the social and ecclesiastical history of their times. Tracing the course of the dramatic change in the fortunes of the English cathedrals and in turn the lives of the most interesting and significant Canons who were in office, Trevor Beeson provides readers with an interesting and undemanding introduction to two centuries of Church history with these portraits of quite remarkable men. Including characters from St Paul's Cathedral, Westminster, Canterbury, York, Ely, Chester, Bristol, Manchester, Winchester and Oxford there are stories to delight readers from around the UK.

Trevor Beeson

Trevor Randall Beeson OBE was Dean of Winchester in the last two decades of the 20th century. He is also an ecclesiastical obituarist.

'The writing is anecdotal and engaging, and the portraits of the Canons are well-painted.' Christian Marketplace, April 2007
