MANY persons having asked for a reprint of this article, Mr. Murray has been good enough to allow it to be made. More than one of those who knew the Bishop best have kindly read it with a view to revision. Special thanks are due to the Archbishop of Canterbury and the Bishop of Durham, both of whom have made valuable suggestions, the latter of whom has also added a prefatory note. It would ill requite their kindness if it were not made clear that neither is responsible VI for anything except that for which his authority is expressly given. Some passages which pressure of space caused to be omitted from the Review, have been added but no attempt has been made to occupy the ground of a memoir. This is simply a sketch, not a portrait, though now less un worthy than it was for artists have touched it of the great scholar, teacher, bishop, man, whom it seeks to present. An Appendix contains the Bishop s views on quotThe Threefold Ministry, quot extracted by himself from his writings at the close of the Lambeth Conference in 1888. December, 1893. PREFATORY NOTE ALL the friends of Bishop Lightfoot must be grateful to Mr. Murray for allowing the striking sketch of the Bishop s character and work which ap peared in the Quarterly Review in January, 1893, to be republished sepa rately. Though thought fit to reveal himself, the writer has not it is clear that he had exceptional advantages for fulfilling the task which he undertook and the description of the life in Durham shows throughout personal and intimate knowledge. Though my own intercourse with the Bishop during this period was necessarily less close and continuous than during earlier years, I recognise the student, the colleague, the friendwhom I knew at Cambridge in every trait, but presented, so to speak, on a larger scale and I can well be lieve that while Dr. Lightfoot loved his College and his University with perfect devotion, the busy episcopate, full of great designs and great achievements, was his happiest time. Cambridge, as I often said to him, seemed to be for gotten, and wisely forgotten, in the new interests of Durham and even I, who was the chief loser, felt that I could rejoice in a greater gain. In Bishop Lightfoot s case the works were the man. What he did was a true expression of himself and if I may venture to speak from my experience during the last three years, I believe that his greatest work was the brotherhood of clergy whom he called to labour with him in the Diocese, and bear his spirit to another generation greater than his masterpieces of interpretation and criticism, greater than his masterpieces of masculine and yet passionate eloquence. I could wish indeed that there was some adequate record of his part versity in Uni affairs. When I returned to Cambridge in 1870 I found him possessed of commanding influence, trusted and revered alike by all. But from that time he withdrew more and more from public business, though his authority was never found to be less
