Synopsis

The peace of Barchester is rudely disrupted by the arrival of the new low-church bishop Dr. Proudie, along with his indomitable, shrew of a wife and Mr. Slope, his chaplain. Two factions split the community as many women are won over to Proudie's side by Slope's persuasive powers, while the Gantyists" remain loyal to the worldly Archdeacon, whose ambitions are dashed by this entourage. Mr. Harding, the gentle ex-warden, and his daughter Eleanor are the innocent victims caught in the middle of these squabbling groups.
