This book identifies the religious ideas and traces the theological development of Benjamin Jowett (1817-93), outstanding 19th-century educator and master of Balliol College, Oxford. Although it is commonly believed that Jowett abandoned theology following the publication of the controversial collection Essays and Reviews, to which he was a contributor, the author argues that Jowett continued to disseminate his theological ideas as master of Balliol College and exerted a substantial influence on theologians of the late 19th and early 20th centuries.
