Bell, Bishop George


Bell, Bishop George
    1883–1958
   A leading British clergyman of progressive views, Bell, as Bishop of Chichester, attracted widespread notice and criticism during World War II for his condemnation of the policy of bombing German cities. A man of unflinching moral courage, he was not the least deterred from expressing his views despite the violent hostility they attracted. Dietrich Bonhöffer was sent by the German resistance circle to negotiate with Bell but nothing came of this.
