Abstract

Hussey’s time as dean was one of searching, indeed existential questioning of the very purpose of the cathedrals within the church, in their urban environments, and as destinations for tourists. The whole of Hussey’s career was a response to these challenges by one particular means; this chapter examines the rest of his record as dean, and argues that his overwhelming focus on the arts was pursued to the detriment of other areas of the cathedral’s life.
