Title
Bishop's University and the Ecclesiastical Controversies of the Nineteenth Century (1845-1878)
Abstract
In the nineteenth century, theological controversies raged between the exponents of the Anglican religion and those who believed in Methodism, Evangelicalism and Christian Liberalism. The author details the role played by Bishop's University, then an Anglican theological college, and by the exponents of the ideas for which Bishop's stood: George Jehosaphat Mountain (1789-1863), the third Anglican Bishop of Quebec and founder of the college; Jasper Nicolls (1818-1877) the first Principal of the college from 1845 to 1877; and Archdeacon Henry Roe (1829-1909), one of the first students at Bishop's and a professor at the school from 1873 to 1891.
