Excerpt from book: in Cambridge we find George Stafford, a Fellow of Pembroke in 1515, afterwards continuing for four years to read a lecture on the Scriptures, " whereas former lecturers in divinity had always read on the Sentences." 1 It is to be observed that the above instances are all of lectures subsequent to those of Colet's, and that they may therefore have been more or less suggested by his.
