Chapter Summary

This chapter shows how James Alipius Goold, Bishop of Melbourne, joined the Archbishop of Sydney and the Bishop of Hobart in promulgating the monitum pastorale of June 1858 and was in Rome in 1858-1859 trying to secure a condemnation of the Sydney Freeman's Journal. Bishop Goold's actions were not inspired by altruistic concern for Polding or even merely by a sense of episcopal solidarity but rather chiefly by self-interest, for in the second half of the 1850s Goold himself was confronted by a challenge to his government of the Catholic Church in the colony of Victoria similar to the campaign of criticism which was convulsing the Archdiocese of Sydney at the same time. Goold's autocratic style was an important factor in the protest movement that arose in Victoria in the 1850s.
