In the Missal which arrived yesterday, there are two pictures of prelates. Who are they?
The Missal received approval from Bishops Walsh and Wiseman in Birmingham in September 1845. They were Vicar Apostolic and Coadjutor Vicar Apostolic for the Central District at the time.
I could convince myself that the lower one could be Pope Gregory XVI, then gloriously reigning, but who could the higher one be? I don't think either is Wiseman, and I haven't got a clue what Bishop Walsh looked like. The caption to the first picture simply records that it was engraved by H Adlard after a sketch by H W Phillips Esq.
All help gratefully received.
