About The Book

This volume consists of five papers selected from a corpus of material researched over the past quarter of a century. None has previously been published, and they represent the author's interest in church history, medical history and the visual arts. Three of the five papers are based on lectures given at conferences or public occasions; the other two derive from research conducted at the Oxford Centre for Methodism and Church History in 2010 and 2020.

Endorsements

‘Wales has a long tradition of according great respect to teachers and scholars. Through his meticulous attention to individuals and their place in history, John Morgan-Guy has quietly revealed aspects of society which others, devoted to the great sweep of things, have missed. These essays are a tribute to an outstanding scholar, one who has furthered and graced Welsh learning.’
Rt Revd Dr Christopher Herbert, Bishop of St Albans (1995–2009)
