Overview

This short-lived (1813–26) classical journal was edited by James Henry Monk (1784–1856) and Charles James Blomfield (1786–1857), who were contemporaries at Trinity College, Cambridge. Both went on to ecclesiastical careers: Monk left his position as Regius Professor of Greek at Cambridge to become Dean of Peterborough and subsequently Bishop of Gloucester and Bristol, while Blomfeld, who already held the country living of Quarrington in Lincolnshire when the journal was founded, became Bishop of London. Encapsulating the dominant contemporary style of English classical scholarship – the close linguistic analysis of (primarily Greek) texts, as practised by Richard Porson (1759–1808), Monk's predecessor as Regius Professor – the Museum criticum became a rival to The Classical Journal (also reissued in this series) and was collected in two volumes in 1826. Illuminating the early development of academic journals, Volume 2 contains issues 5–8.
