The Professor and the Parson

A Story of Desire, Deceit and Defrocking

Adam Sisman

Researching his biography of Hugh Trevor-Roper, Adam Sisman came across a thick folder marked ‘Robert Parkin Peters’. It was a dossier on a graduate student at Oxford who approached the historian for help in 1958, but soon aroused his suspicions. Taking up where Trevor-Roper left off, Sisman uncovers the outrageous career of a defrocked priest, self-styled bishop, multiple bigamist and fraudster who fooled churches and universities around the globe.
