THE CASE OF THE REV. G.C. GORHAM, AGAINST THE BISHOP OF EXETER, As Heard and Determined By the Judicial Committee of The Privy Council On Appeal From The Arches Court of Canterbury
V. & R. Stevens and G.S. Norton 1852 - Hardback. The Gorham case, originally a suit of duplex querela in the Arches Court, is the most famous of the Bishop of Exeter's lawsuits, and arose in connection with his refusal to institute the Rev. G. C. Gorham to the living of Brampford Speke, (to which he had been duly presented in 1847, on the ground that the presentee had failed to satisfy him as to his orthodoxy on the doctrine of Baptism. The ultimate judgment, on appeal to the Privy Council, was adverse to the Bishop, and Gorham was instituted (8 March 1850). Archbishop Sumner was stated to approve the decision. The Bishop, Henry Phillpotts, wrote to him protesting that the Archbishop was supporting heresies, and threatening to hold no communion with him. He assembled a Diocesan Synod at Exeter to reaffirm the doctrine, which the Privy Council had held not to be obligatory on Gorham, and repeated his censure of the Archbishop in his visitation in 1851. But he bore Gorham no personal ill-will, and liberally subscribed to the restoration of Gorham's church at Brampford Speke. With Appendix. 486pp. lge. 8vo. h/back.
