non-residence

non-residence. Residence in one's place of ministry has been compulsory since early times for all bishops and beneficed clergy, but absence became a substantial abuse in the later Middle Ages. Notable examples were Wyclif who, though he attacked the abuse, was himself not resident, and Wolsey who successively held several sees in commendam with the archbishopric of York. Non-residence was a major target of the reformers. The Council of Trent specifically banned it, as did the Anglican canons of 1604 and 1964–9. Nevertheless it was commonplace in the 18th cent. since many livings were too poor in themselves to support a priest; 60 per cent of incumbents were non-resident in 1808.

Revd Dr William M. Marshall
