(1818–1866) Anglican priest who founded the Sisters of Saint Margaret (one of the first Anglican orders of women after the Reformation) for medical nursing work among England’s rural poor. He insisted on professional training for the nurses and fostered the autonomous leadership of women in their community. Forging strong ecumenical ties with Eastern Orthodoxy, he brought a daring, renewed feeling of beauty and tenderness to Anglican liturgy, hymnody, and architecture. (August 6)
