W.H.C. Frend

William Hugh Clifford Frend (11 January 1916 - 1 August 2005) was an English ecclesiastical historian, archaeologist and Anglican priest.

Ministry

Frend inclined towards the Low Church tradition. He was a sometimes reluctant liberal who cautiously supported the ordination of women but criticised Bishop Jenkins of Durham over his non-traditional ideas about Christmas. He was considered a good and humble pastor and an enlightening, if theologically unconventional, preacher.
