    When Thomas Thornton Reed was consecrated Bishop of Adelaide in 1957 he was in outlook and theology a representative figure among the bishops of the Anglican Church in Australia: his views were widely shared by other bishops and among the clergy of the diocese of Adelaide. During his episcopate, however, the Australian Church began moving in directions which Dr. reed regretted and deplored. The late 1960s saw the beginnings of a new alignment in the Church which cut across the traditional division between "high" and "low": between liberals who welcomed change and conservatives who regarded it with suspicion. In its dominant attitudes and outlook the Australian Church underwent a subtle shift. By the 1970s it was less attached to tradition and more concerned withthe world outside the church. Reed's views, on the other hand, were consistent and did not shift significantly.
