Villages and towns in the Victorian era saw a great expansion in educational provision, and witnessed the rise of the elementary teaching profession, often provided and supported by local clergymen. This book investigates the social and economic relationships of such clergymen and teachers who worked co-operatively and at times in competition with each other, their relative positions typified by the comment of one contemporary clergyman as 'those of master and servant'. The inevitable result was a complex of movements in society in the final third of the nineteenth century that led to increasing clashes in villages, as one group (the clergy) sought to preserve its hold on its status and power, while the other (male and female teachers) attempted to secure their new role in society. The research presented is based on previously unused, original sources -- church documents, HMI reports, newspapers and journals and private papers. It is not confined, as is the case with so much recent research, to the Church of England, but breaks new ground in providing a comparative analysis of the social position and educational work of Roman Catholic and Wesleyan clergy, and their collaboration with their elementary school teachers. This book is essential reading for all those interested in Victorian Education.

Notă biografică

John T. Smith is senior lecturer in education at the University of Hull. He has written numerous articles on 19th-century education and is the author of "The History of Lady Lumley's Foundation" and "Methodism and Education, 1849-1902."


"In drawing together Anglican, Nonconformist, and Roman Catholic approaches to teachers, teaching, and the management of schools in 19th-century England, Dr. Smith delineates the essence of contemporary and commonly held beliefs as to the nature and purpose of education. Essentially approaching the theme from a 'grass roots' perspective, he shows how relationships among the main protagonists are affected by cultural or political change and, ultimately, by the more perceptive educational preparation of teachers and a developing sense of professionalism. His book contributes not only refreshing comparative insights but also a vivid realization of the Victorian interplay of religious, moral, social, and economic factors in education as well as the tensions they engender. It makes a significant contribution to the understanding of the philosophy of education of the period and to the discernment of commitment." --V. A. McClelland, author, "Cardinal Manning"
