    'In the age of entrepreneurial free-for-all with self-reliance promoted as the cardinal virtue, the parish clergy were the closest the Victorians came to a national network to support the poor and the weak.' Turner goes on to explain how it was the vicars who set up schools, promoted literacy and campaigned for better living conditions; and who set standards and provided community and spiritual leadership in a period of unprecedented technological, commercial and social change.
