A Book of the Year 2018 for The Times, Mail on Sunday and BBC History Magazine The Archbishop of York's behaviour was 'never that expected of a cleric, rarely that expected of a pirate'...

Join Revd Fergus Butler-Gallie for a showcase of his Field Guide to the English Clergy; a compendium of diverse eccentrics, pirates, prelates and adventurers; all Anglican, some even practising. Fergus will also be talking about his new book, Priests de la Resistance! a biography of extraordinary priests famously willing to give their lives to fight the war against fascism.

The Reverend Fergus Butler-Gallie is a young curate in the Church of England who once accidentally appeared on Only Connect. He holds a bachelor's degree in history from the University of Oxford and a bachelor's degree in theology from the University of Cambridge. He is (according to his own taxonomy) a Bon Viveur first and foremost, with a soupçon of Roguishness and Prodigality. This is his first book.
