Benjamin Treadwell Onderdonk (1791-1861) was the Bishop of the Episcopal Diocese of New York from 18301861. While he presided over the Diocese during a period of expansion and was instrumental in the creation of numerous parishes, he is best remembered as one of the most controversial figures in the history of the Diocese of New York, and indeed the Episcopal Church in the United States. A number of women alleged that Onderdonk had made improper advances towards them and had engaged in improper touching. This led to a trial (Presentment) which led to a guilty finding and Onderdonk was suspended. Many believed these were trumped up charges to punish Onderdonk for finding Arthur Carey suitable for ordination (Carey was accused of having Roman Catholic leanings). Quantity Available: 1.
