RENOWNED RELIGIOUS CONVERTS

JAMES PIKE, U.S., 1913-1969.

Episcopal bishop of San Francisco, he was a controversial clergyman once tried for heresy for denying the doctrine of the Trinity. A champion of civil rights, planned parenthood, and social reform, he also explored spiritualism.

From: Roman Catholicism.

To: Anglicanism.

Why: Pike felt that the Roman Catholic Church was too restrictive of individual thought and behavior, and in general he took an intellectual rather than a mystical approach to religious issues. (Later in life, however, he discovered spiritualism.) Before joining the Episcopal Church, Pike was an agnostic. He felt that Anglicanism blended his Catholic heritage with freedom of thought.
