Anglican Clergy in the Late Georgian Era

For a somewhat satirical look at the clergy of the Church of England in the late 18th / early 19th centuries go here.

Wonderful stuff . . .

A long time ago, I had some familiarity with political and social satire in Georgian England. Somehow, I missed this.

In a similar vein, you [and your readers] might enjoy the well known folk song, “The Vicar of Bray”

Recorded by the incomparable Theodore Bikel

I had that recording by Theodore Bikel. I had it back when I was 18 and became Orthodox. I know "The Vicar of Bray" is satire. I agree with the line about kings being God's annointed. I didn't feel that way back then, but I do now. People ask," How can you be a monarchist?" My answer is that I am Orthodox, therefore I am a Monarchist.
