Purchase of this book includes free trial access to www.million-books.com where you can read more than a million books for free. This is an OCR edition with typos. Excerpt from book: ENGLAND DURING THE LATTER HALF OF THE THIRTEENTH CENTURY The title of these lectures, as announced, is England and the English in the Thirteenth Century. On looking at the syllabus, however, you will see that the illustrations are drawn almost entirely from the latter half of the century. To this period I propose confining myselfto the later years of Henry III., which were occupied in the conflict between the King and the Barons, and to the reign of Edward L, when the principles asserted in that conflict were developed and matured. These limits will not be transgressed on either side, except so far as it may be necessary to explain the career of men, or the development of principles, or the progress of events, by reference to what had gone before or to what was coming after. The last fifty years comprise, at least as regards England, almost all that is greatest in the characteristics, movements, and the heroic personages of the century. And certainly, if the lectures lack interest, the fault will lie not in the theme, but in the lecturer.

J. B. LIGHTFOOT (1828-1889) was an outstanding British New Testament scholar. He worked with F. J. A. Hort and B. F. Westcott at Cambridge University to produce a New Testament commentary based on a reliable Greek text. His work in demonstrating the first-century origin of the New Testament books helped demolish the TUbingen school of biblical criticism. Along with his Philippians, his commentaries on Galatians and Colossians/Philemon are still considered landmarks of biblical study and exposition.
