ActivityBorn 4 June 1905, died 13 January 1989. Moorman was educated at Gresham's School, Holt, and Emmanuel College Cambridge where he obtained a second class (division two) in part one of the history tripos (1926) and a second class in part one of the theology tripos. He gained his Bachelor of Divinity for 'The Sermons of the Life of St. Francis of Assisi' in 1940 and was awarded the Doctorate of Divinity in 1945 for 'Church Life in the Thirteenth Century'. In 1930 Moorman married Mary Caroline Macaulay (1905-1994), the daughter of the historian G.M. Trevelyan.

Moorman trained at Westcott House, Cambridge, for ordination in the Church of England. He was ordained to a curacy at Holbeck, Leeds (1929-33) followed by Leighton Buzzard (1933-35). Moorman was appointed rector of Fallowfield, Manchester (1935-42); vicar of Lanercost (1945-46); principal of Chichester Theological College and chancellor of Chichester Cathedral (1946-56); bishop of Ripon (1959-75). A pacifist, nevertheless Moorman was keen to contribute to the war effort and in 1943 he worked as a farm hand in Wharfdale.

From 1962 to 1965 Moorman was chief Anglican observer at the Second Vatican Council. This was followed in 1967 by the role of Anglican chairman of the preparatory commission leading to the establishment of the Anglican - Roman Catholic International Commission. He was a member of the Commission from its inception in 1969 until 1981.

In addition to his church duties Moorman was considered the leading English Franciscan scholar. Amongst his many published works, Moorman's principal publications include Sources for the Life of S Francis of Assisi (1940); Saint Francis of Assisi (1950); A History of the Church of England (1953); A History of the Franciscan Order (1968) and Medieval Franciscan Houses (1983).
