[Note 7, Chapter One, in print version]

Trollope, an obviously hostile witness, explains that both the High Church Dr. Grantly and the Evangelical Rev. Mr. Slope "are eager, much too eager, to support and increase the power of their order. Both are anxious that the world should be priest-governed. . . . Both begrudge any other kind of dominion held by man over man" (ch. 4, Barchester Towers ). Friendlier witnesses would point out that the Tractarians, who often battled with the Evangelicals, resembled them in zeal and earnestness.
