- I thought listers may like to know that born this day in 1825 was, Brooke
Foss Westcott, near Birmingham, England. He was appointed the chair of
Professor of Divinity at Cambridge. In 1881 he and F. J. A. Hort co-edited
their famous critical text of the Greek New Testament, which has become the
basis for many current translations. His learning extended beyond books, and
he took a deep interest in settling industrial disputes with the coal miners
of his diocese.

School in Birmingham just down the road from where I am sitting now.
He met J. B. Lightfoot there. Later in the century Bernard Pyne
Grenfell also went to King Edward VI school where his father, John
Granville Grenfell was master.
