Doctors and livings
Posted by Constanza on July 21, 1998 at 09:36:30:
When does a parson become a Doctor? Does he have to prepare a thesis? Or is it related to the position he holds in Church of England?
What other professionals other than physicians are called "doctor"?
Another thing, how is it the purchase of a living brought about? To be more specific, in the case of Dr. Grant and Sir Thomas, what did each of them gain by the operation? I mean, if the living was profitable for Dr. Grant, it should have been profitable for Sir Thomas as well, unless he needed some lump sum ready. Unless Sir Thomas had desired to get rid of the expense of keeping a curate at the living... I am a little puzzled, can someone explain?
