(1645–1707), NT textual critic. From 1670 to 1682 he was a fellow of Queen's College, Oxford, and from 1685 till his death principal of St Edmund Hall. His edition of the Greek text of the NT, published in 1707, was a great advance on any of its predecessors, as Mills added to it a critical apparatus containing the readings of nearly 100 MSS. His correct name appears to have been ‘Mills’, not (as commonly given) ‘Mill’.
