There are few castes more prone to stereotype than the clergy, and those of the Church of England have been subject to more satire, stereotype and sometimes accurate presumption about their nature and make up than most. From Sterne’s Parson Yorick to Dawn French’s Vicar of Dibley- the stock type of cyber Anglican vicar is well known. But who were the people who inspired these stereotypes, what- if any- influences does that have on the clergy of today and what might the future hold for this familiar type?

The Reverend Fergus Butler Gallie began his ministry as Assistant Curate in the Parish of Liverpool and is now on the clergy team at Holy Trinity Upper Chelsea in the Diocese of London. He is an author of two books as well as numerous articles and essays.
