Short Studies in Ecclesiastical History and Biography (Classic Reprint)

Henry Nutcombe Oxenham


Excerpt from Short Studies in Ecclesiastical History and Biography

The following essays are reprinted, by the kind permission of the editor, from the Saturday Review, with some corrections and additions, and the occasional omission of matter of merely temporary interest. In one or two cases portions of different articles bearing on the same subject have been incorporated. It was of course inevitable in dealing, under the necessary limitations of space, with themes of wide and varied import, on many of which whole volumes might be written, that a method of treatment should be adopted suggestive rather than exhaustive, with a view to bringing out the salient points, and thus refreshing the memory or stimulating the minds of those who may lack leisure or opportunity for more serious study. And in a busy and restless, which is also a reading age, but is somewhat apt to regard "a great book, as a great evil," the author ventures to hope that to many readers such aids to their own reflection may prove not unacceptable.
