Stanley Underhill, a Brother at the Charterhouse, tells of his struggle against institutionalised ignorance, a battle that was to consume most of his life. In middle life and in spite of the ubiquitous homophobia and hypocrisy of the Church and State he gave in to that inner voice that had persisted since he was a teenager and was ordained a priest.
