Summary
"The church played a role in the 'retainting' of leprosy in the nineteenth century, but religious ideas had multiple effects. A small group of 'coloured lepers' on Friday Island responded to Christian teaching in the early 1900s, supported by Gilbert White, Anglican Bishop of Carpentaria, a vocal opponent of their incarceration. They were led first by Islander teachers and later, an Indigenous man, Thomas Moreton, whose leadership flowed from the religious to the political. An articulate voice of protest against incarceration, Moreton?s strength derived from his attachment to family, community, land and his sense of being one of the 'creatures of the Living God'".
