Spenser by R. W Church ( Book )
114 editions published between 1879 and 2011 in English and Undetermined and held by 1,976 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
This biography of poet Edmund Spenser (c. 1552 1599), is an invaluable source for students of Spenser. Unparalleled in its information about one of the greatest poets in the English language, Church illuminates the life of a man who is best known for his epic poem The Faerie Queene , an adventure-filled tale that is also an allegory about living a moral, virtuous life
The Oxford movement; twelve years, 1833-1845 by R. W Church ( Book )
81 editions published between 1891 and 2004 in English and Undetermined and held by 1,925 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
First published in 1891, The Oxford Movement consists of a series of essays by R.W. Church, dean (1871-90) of St Paul's Cathedral, which together provide a largely chronological account of the development of the Oxford Movement from Keble's famous Assize Sermon in 1833 to the "catastrophe" of Newman's secession from the Church of England in 1845. It is a tribute to Church's scholarship, style and insight that over a century later his book remains the best introduction, for student and general reader alike, to the most famous religious movement of nineteenth-century England. Church is without rival for his lucid treatment of complex issues and events, and he offers sympathetic insights into the minds of the leading protagonists. Edited by Dr Arthur Burns of King's College, London, this is the first annotated edition; in addition to hundreds of hyperlinked explanatory notes, it contains an introduction, summary, biographical note and bibliography
