The Details

Reformer. Activist. "The Red Bishop" and "A Most Meddlesome Priest". These are just some of the ways that Bishop Ernest Burgmann came to be known in Australia. Passionate and outspoken about social justice and civil rights, his activism strove to awaken Australia from its conservative complacency. In the words of Peter Hempenstall, who published a book on Burgmann in 1993,his actions had a profound and far-reaching impact on Australians well beyond the boundaries of his diocese. Burgmann’s words and actions hold a promise of extraordinary relevance to Australian society today.

Join St Mark's, the Australian Centre for Christianity and Culture, and the Anglican Historical Society as we celebrate Bishop Ernest Burgmann's life and legacy.
