Notes
"Charles Inglis was consecrated on 12 August 1787 as the Bishop of Nova Scotia, a diocese encompassing all British North America from Detroit to Newfoundland. There were many events and activities to mark the bicentenary. The Canadian House of Bishops and the National Executive Council met in Halifax during mid-October [1987]. As well, there were the Archbishop Owen Memorial Lectures, delivered in September and October. In Atlantic Canada, Professor Henry Roper, of the University of King's College in Halifax, talked on 'The Anglican episcopate in Canada -- an historical perspective'. Bishop John A. Baycroft spoke in Ontario, including to the Synod of the Diocese of Toronto, on 'Episcopacy in relation to Synods'. Archbishop Michael Peers spoke in eastern Ontario and Montreal on the 'Episcopacy as a dimension of ecumenism'. Dr. Eugene Fairweather talked on 'Episcopacy and Authority' on the prairies, while Archbishop Ted Scott considered the 'Future of episcopacy' for British Columbia audiences. The Owen Memorial Lectures have been published by the Anglican Book Centre, together with commentaries by people well-informed on the issues raised. Given that no one could have attended all the lectures, and that the lecturers are so distinguished, this volume should be a welcome [addition] to the libraries of our members".

Notes
A concise summary of the episcopacy and significance of Charles Inglis, first bishop of Nova Scotia. "Charles Inglis was an 18th century bishop although with many differences from other members of his order both before and after his day. .... As a bishop he was indeed 'sui generis'. It has recently been written of him that 'the years of his episcopacy formed the anti-climax to a controversial career'. If controversy be the touchstone then the statement may stand. But his achievements as bishop represented not the anti-climax but rather the culmination of a long and useful life" (p. 46).

Notes
Charles Inglis, the first bishop of Nova Scotia, arrived in Halifax on 16 October 1787. One of Inglis' first duties was "to gather the clergy of the Diocese to a particular locale for the issuing of his charge, or official instructions. This time-honoured process is usually referred to as a Visitation" (p. 25). "The practice of the Visitation, whether it be annual, triennial, or at some other period of time, was based on a standard set of practices and procedures. Central to the entire process was the creation and receipt of three sets of documents connected with the episcopal office. First, there was the notice of the Visitation; second there was the articles of inquiry; and third, there was the 'Acta' which included the minutes of proceedings, an inventory of ornaments, vestments, books of the church, financial arrangements, and a general survey of the fabric. Of the three, arguably the most important were the articles of inquiry of the 'Questions'" (p. 26). Inglis sent out a "Letter & Questions" to the clergy of his diocese in March 1788. The request would "have provided the clergy with a feeling that they actually had a hand in the running of the diocese. Such a questionnaire that asked for their input on a wide variety of matters, both of this world and the next, would undoubtedly have appealed to their sense of democracy" (p. 26). The bishop's letter and questions did not reach the Rev. John Stuart, rector of Catarqui (Kingston, Ontario), until September 1789, after he returned from attending the Visitation in June 1789. The 1788 questionnaire sent to Stuart is the only copy to have survived. "The author would like to thank Brian Cuthbertson, Inglis' biographer, who sent a copy of Inglis' 'Letter' to the Diocese of Ontario Archives, thereby re-uniting the Bishop's 'Questions' and the Rector's 'Answers' for the first time in two hundred years" (p. 40).
Article include the complete text of Inglis' "Letter" and the "Rector's" (John Stuart's) answers. Questionnaire divided into sections: Title I: Concerning the extent and population of Parishes -- Title II: Concerning Churches -- Title III: Concerning the Celebration of Divine Service, and other Ministerial Duties -- Title IV: Concerning Glebes, other property of the Church -- Title V: Concerning Churchwardens -- Title VI: Concerning Schools -- Title VII: Concerning Confirmation -- Title VIII.
