Excerpt from College Sermons

The first two Sermons printed in this volume belong to a different period from the rest, and may be said to represent an 'earlier manner.' Mr. Jowett was at that time a young tutor whose views were not fully formed, but whose fresh and keen interest in his pupils was already the same which distinguished him to the end.

It was at that time the custom at Balliol College that the Holy Communion was celebrated only once in the middle of each term; and on the Saturday evening preceding this each tutor gathered his own pupils into his room and delivered to them an address in preparation for the Sacrament. Mr. Jowett's addresses on these occasions were highly valued by the more thoughtful of his pupils, and it seems desirable to give specimens of them.

He preached comparatively seldom before he became Master.
