Abstract

Trollope and the Church of England is the first detailed study of Trollope's attitude towards his Anglican faith and the Church, and the impact this had on his works. It provides a comprehensive account of the main issues and interests in his life, including an examination of the people and ecclesiastical issues behind his work. Durey controversially explodes the myth that Trollope's most popular characters just happened to be clerical and were simply a skit on the Church, by revealing the true extent of his lifelong fascination with religion. The study extends beyond his most popular novels to lesser-known works, and to his non-fiction, to elucidate his concerns as they are related to the Church and religion.
