Joseph J. Feeney suggests of Hopkins's sermons that 'His contests are, as it were

congregations have suffered through.'6 The danger here was that
uncommonness in the pulpit would be taken as evidence of singularity, a trait

... is James Finn Cotter's Inscape: The Christology and Poetry of Gerard Manley
Hopkins (1972). A close examination of Hopkins's theological development in
relation to the Christ of the gospel, in the Church Fathers, and in Scotus, leads
into a detailed reading of the poetry. Cotter, as other studies do, seizes on
Hopkins's undergraduate interest in the early Greek philosopher, Parmenides (
Barnes 1987:40, 129–42), and sees his influence in Hopkins's evolution of the
idea of 'inscape', ...
