Kultur in Hereford

02 January 2015

January 1st, 1915.

WE UNDERSTOOD that the Bishop of Hereford had it in his mind to secure the help of an Assistant Bishop of a different type of Churchmanship from his own. The opportunity to do this was presented when the death of Canon Capes vacated a stall in the Cathedral. His lordship, however, has not taken the opportunity, but has appointed to the canonry the Rev. B. H. Streeter, whose contribution to the Oxford essays, Foundations, is a matter of notoriety. The Chapter of Hereford is now a carefully packed society. The Cathedral is a little Modernist enclave within the Catholic Church of England. It is perfectly alien, and frankly hostile to Catholic tradition. There is a novel of Mrs Humphrey Ward's in which its ideal as now seen in working at Hereford is anticipated. For the time we are compelled to acquiesce in this insulation of a part of the Church, and to regard it as a semi-pagan settlement, worked on principles which might have been made in Germany. The Bishop and his colleagues are determined to enforce upon the diocese their own peculiar "kultur", but they will not succeed any more than their kultured models.
