A bishop then must be blameless, the husband of one wife, vigilant, sober, of good behaviour, given to hospitality, apt to teach; not given to wine, no striker, not greedy of filthy lucre; but patient, not a brawler, not covetous...Likewise must the deacons be grave, not double-tongued, not given to much wine, not greedy of filthy lucre; holding the mystery of the faith in a pure conscience.
The Bishop of Rome hath no jurisdiction in this Realm of England.
This is to be observed of the Bishop of London, that, though apparently of a spirit somewhat austere, there is in his idiosyncrasy a strange fund of enthusiasm, a quality which ought never to be possessed by an ArchBishop of Canterbury, or a Prime Minister of England. The Bishop of London sympathies with everything that is earnest; but what is earnest is not always true; on the contrary error is often more earnest than truth.benjamin disraeli
In the reign of the Greek Emperor Justinian , and again in the reign of Phocas , the Bishop of Rome obtained some dominion over the Greek Churches, but of no long continuance. His standing dominion was only over the nations of the Western Empire, represented by Daniel's fourth Beast.isaac newton
We cannot know what John of Leyden felt Under the Bishop 's tongs – we can only Walk in temperate London, our educated city, Wishing to cry as freely as they did who died In the Age of Faith. We have our loneliness And our regret with which to build an eschatology.peter porter
'Tis from high Life high Characters are drawn; A Saint in Crape is twice a Saint in Lawn: A Judge is just, a Chanc'llor juster still; A Gownman learn'd; a Bishop what you will; Wise if a minister; but if a King, More wise, more learn'd, more just, more ev'rything.Alexander Pope
One man alone had really known the sciences, namely, Robert, Bishop of Lincoln.roger bacon
Few have attained to consummate wisdom in the perfection of philosophy: Solomon attained to it, and Aristotle in relation to his times, and in a later age Avicenna , and in our own days the recently deceased Robert, Bishop of Lincoln, and Adam Marsh.roger bacon
No one really knew the sciences except the Lord Robert, Bishop of Lincoln, by reason of his length of life and experience, as well as of his studiousness and zeal. He knew mathematics and perspective, and there was nothing which he was unable to know; and at the same time he was sufficiently acquainted with languages to be able to understand the saints and the philosophers and the wise men of antiquity but his knowledge of languages was not such as to enable him to effect translations until the latter portion of his life...roger bacon
Bishop Warburton is reported to have said that high birth was a thing which he never knew any one disparage except those who had it not, and he never knew any one make a boast of it who had anything else to be proud of.Richard Whately
In the books there are some loose dicta that an Act of Parliament and the common law should respectively stand as originals according to the circumstances of the case; but this is not law, unless it be confined to prohibitions for excess of jurisdiction and to restrain waste. Heath, J., Jefferson v. Bishop of Durham (1797), 2 Bos. & Pull. 129.
The oyster-women lock'd their fish up, And trudged away to cry, No Bishop.
"Orthodoxy, my Lord," said Bishop Warburton, in a whisper, "orthodoxy is my doxy, heterodoxy is another man's doxy."

When Bishop Berkeley said "there was no matter," And proved it, 'Twas no matter what he said.lord byron
It was a blonde. A blonde to make a Bishop kick a hole in a stained glass window.Raymond Chandler
There was a state without king or nobles; there was a church without a Bishop; there was a people governed by grave magistrates which it had selected, and by equal laws which it had framed.rufus choate
All liaisons between homosexuals are conducted as though they were between a chorus girl and a Bishop. In some cases both parties think they are bishops.Quentin Crisp
They [the Americans] equally detest the pageantry of a king, and the supercilious hypocrisy of a Bishop.junius
We have experienced the truth of this prophecy, for England has become the habitation of outsiders and the dominion of foreigners. Today, no Englishman is earl, Bishop, or abbott, and newcomers gnaw away at the riches and very innards of England; nor is there any hope for an end of this misery.william of malmesbury
A blonde to make a Bishop kick a hole in a stained glass window.Raymond Chandler
Sometimes there was a serious article on a hot topic, and I especially remember one by a Bishop headed "Is Nudity Salacious?" The Bishop thought it need not be, if encountered in the proper spirit, but he gave a lot of enlightening examples of conditions under which it might be, in his word, "inflammatory." There wasn't much nudity in our neck of the woods, and I enjoyed that article tremendously.Robertson Davies
...in the Churches of the East Amen is still commonly said after the form of baptism , sometimes by the bystanders, sometimes by the priest himself. In the prayers of exorcism it is the person exorcised who is expected to say "Amen", and in the conferring of sacred orders, when the vestments, etc., are given to the candidate by the Bishop with some prayer of benediction , it is again the candidate who responds, just as in the solemn blessing of the Mass the people answer in the person of the server.

That henceforth sacred Scripture . . . be printed in the most correct manner possible; and that it shall not be lawful for any one to print, or cause to be printed, any books whatever on sacred matters without the name of the author; or in future to sell them, or even to possess them, unless they shall have been first examined and approved of by the [local Bishop].
