The Late Victorian Controversy about Hell, Judgment, and an Intermediate State
|Author: ||Turner, Michael|
Dr. Turner discusses the attitudes of late Victorians towards the states of the afterlife and if there is a intermediate state. He looks at the attitudes and they affected society, in particular the 1870s and 1880s.
"This book is about the most significant stage in the quarrel-that of the late 1870s and early 1880s, inaugurated by the publication in 1878 of a series of sermons by Frederic William Farrar (1831-1903), canon of Westminster, rector of St. Margaret's Westminster, chaplain in ordinary to Queen Victoria and former fellow of Trinity College, Cambridge. One of the many replies to Farrar, one that gained special attention was by the venerable Edward Bouverie Pusey (1800-82), a seasoned controversalist who for decades had been a notably conservative force in the Church of England."
