Doctrine and Discipline

  • David Hope (a1)

In a concluding article as co-patron of the Ecclesiastical Law Society,1 the Most Reverend and Right Honourable Dr David Hope offers a reflection on his personal experiences of the interplay between doctrine and discipline encountered during his period of office as Archbishop of York. He focuses on censures of deprivation and disqulification under section 55 of the Ecclesiastical Jurisdiction Measure 1963; deposition appeals; summary revocation of clerical licences; and the Lambeth and Bishopthorpe Register.
