Abstract:

Publisher's description: For nearly forty years Archbishop Lang was closely concerned in the affairs of church and state. Many of the most influential people in the country respected and leaned upon his judgment. He knew nearly all the people who mattered most in the nation's affairs and knew some of them very well. Contemporaries who watched him at work have declared him with emphasis a great archbishop. The claim is easier to assert than justify, for it hangs not upon any single quality or achievement but on a multiplicity of gift and merit, and of duties faithfully and often brilliantly performed. It is the greatness of the forest rather than any particular tree in it. The man remains, that complicated, introspective, emotional person who has been allowed, so far as has been possible in these pages, to speak for himself.
