(1784–1829), Bp. of Oxford from 1827. After a brilliant career at Christ Church, Oxford, where he was in turn lecturer, tutor, and censor, he was appointed Regius professor of divinity in 1822, an office which he retained until his death. He was a High Churchman, and by his teaching influenced J. H. Newman, E. B. Pusey, and R. H. Froude. He emphasized, as Tract 90 did later, the importance of distinguishing between the decrees of the Council of Trent and popular RC practice, and he insisted upon the primitive and medieval elements in the BCP. He was the tutor, friend, and counsellor of the statesman Sir Robert Peel.
