Born on 1 December 1906, the Anglican clergyman George William Outram Addleshaw was Dean of Chester in the third quarter of the 20th century.
He was also vice-principal of St Chad's College which is linked to the University of Durham.
In 1938, the Anglican Diocese of Winchester requested him to investigate the emerging Jeunesse Ouvrière Chrétienne in Belgium.
Jacques Meert and Marguerite Fiévez write:
On another occasion Addleshaw lamented that:
"Worship has become divorced from the ordinary life of the world. There appears to be no relation between what is done at the altar and the grim realities of everyday working life. Again this is due to tendencies present both in Catholicism and Protestantism since the Reformation, which the secularist exclusion of dogma from the world of politics and economics has only accentuated."--GWO Addleshaw, The High Church Tradition, Introduction.
Here are three publications that Rev. Addleshaw produced following these investigations.
