When Edward Lee Hicks was appointed Bishop of Lincoln in 1910, the diocese acquired a spiritual leader very different in character from his predecessor, the saintly Edward King.  Hicks was identified as a strong supporter of the Liberal Party; for six years he had written a weekly article in the Manchester Guardian and he was a champion of minority causes such as temperance reform and women’s suffrage.

In this study of his life, Canon Neville draws on the rich source of evidence provided by the diaries of everyday events which Hicks kept while he was at Lincoln.  The portrait which emerges reveals a sensitive and scholarly man who nevertheless was always courageous in speaking out for what he believed to be right.
