During his time as Fellow and Dean at Clare College, Cambridge, he was arrested and fined for singing psalms as part of the CND protest at Lakenheath air-base. At the age of 36 he became the youngest ever Lady Margaret Professor of Divinity in Oxford; six years later he was elected Bishop of Monmouth and later Archbishop of Wales. Rowan is a noted poet and translator of poetry, and, apart from Welsh, speaks or reads nine other languages. He is also a prolific author, having published studies of Arius, Teresa of Avila, and Sergii Bulgakov, together with writings on a wide range of theological, historical and political themes.
