Sarah Mullally, appointed this week as the first woman Bishop of London, the third most senior position in the Anglican Church.
A former nurse and senior civil servant, she was ordained in 2001. Her surprise appointment followed a brief spell as Bishop of Devon in Crediton.
She's expected to attract criticism from more conservative elements of the Anglo-Catholic and Evangelical elements of the church.
