Inhaltsangabe: Colin Stephenson, who succeeded Alfred Hope Patten as Master of the Guardians and Priest Administrator of the Shrine of Our Lady of Walsingham, was one of the most amusing and entertaining observers of the high Anglicanism to which he was devoted. In Walsingham Way, he gives full flight to his renowned wit and self-deprecating humour. He tells the remarkable story of the restoration of the mediaeval Shrine by his famous predecessor and paints a vivid portrait of this larger than life character whose determined vision recreated England's premier place of pilgrimage and renewal in the quiet Norfolk countryside. We meet in these pages an endless succession of fascinating characters who flocked to Walsingham in those heady years of the first half of the twentieth century. Colin Stephenson never set out to write an authoritative historical record and his perspective is at times distinctively personal, yet Watchigham Way remains one of the most warm, engaging and sought after accounts of one of Anglo-Catholicism's greatest triumphs and one of its most memorable characters.
Über den Autor: COLIN STEPHENSON was Guardian of Walsingham from 1958 until his death in 1973. Walsingham Way was first published in 1970, and followed by his autobiography, Merrily On High in 1973.
