Exploring the central events and debates within the Church of England in the first half of the nineteenth century, this book examines Howley’s career and influence. A section of primary sources places Howley’s achievements in proper context and illustrates his prevailing concerns in education, the establishment and political reform. Dealing thematically with many of the issues faced by Howley, and exploring his own High Church theological views in historical context, Garrard offers a fruitful re-appraisal of the intellectual, spiritual and ‘party’ context in which Howley moved.

"Dowling's compact and intelligently argued study is concerned with the late-Victorian emergence of homosexuality as an identity rather than as an activity.... [This identity] was formed out of notions of Hellenism current in mid-century Oxford that were held to be lofty and ennobling and even a kind of substitute for a waning Christianity."—Nineteenth- Century Literature "Dowling's study is an exceptionally clear-headed and far-reaching analysis of the way Greek studies operated as a 'homosexual code' during the great age of English university reform.... Beautifully written and argued with subtlety, the book is indispensable for students of Victorian literature, culture, gender studies, and the nature of social change."—Choice "Hellenism and Homosexuality... presents a detailed and knowledgeable... account of such factors as the Oxford Movement and the influence of such Victorian dons as Jowett and Pater and the evolving evaluations of Classical Greece, its mores and morals. It is also enhanced by [an] analysis of Greek terminology with homosexual connotations, as to be found, for instance, in Plato's Republic."—Lambda Book Report

This approach paid dividends before the Civil War, but did not provide a solid basis for equal opportunity afterwards.
