"Brian Dominick Frederick Titus Leo Brindley was the grandest eccentric ever produced by the Anglo-Catholic movement in the Church of England. Banished by his bishop to a black-street church in Reading, this portly cleric turned it into an Anglo-Papalist Disneyland, adorned with baroque reliquaries, spiky bondicuseric and hundreds of candles." "But there was more to Brindley than a ritualist. He was also an astute committee chairman in the General Synod and a learned, funny and loyal friend." "Then came disaster. He was forced to resign his living. But he reinvented himself as a Roman Catholic journalist, filling the pages of The Catholic Herald with his quirky musings on liturgy, food, architecture and soap operas." "Brindley's death was as perfectly stage-managed as his services. He dropped dead, surrounded by his closest friends, at his 70th birthday party in the Athenaeum Club in London on 1 August 2001." "This volume contains reminiscences by his friends, including his Oxford contemporaries Alan Bennett and Ned Sherrin, but the centrepiece of the book is a biographical essay by the Jesuit historian, Anthony Symondson."--BOOK JACKET.
