      John,
      Without unpicking your hesitant affirmation, suffice to say that as far as I can see Edwyn C. Hoskyns (NB sp.) had no association with the Oxford school. He was a Cambridge man! Even a Corpus Christi man.
      Doubtless he may have read the books, but he had no association with Oxford, and (as he says in the material you cited), was of a different (scholarly) generation from the Oxford Studies (1911; seminar since 1894 [when Hoskyns was 10 years old]), if not from Streeter's book (1924).

      Markus Bockmuehl published an article on Hoskyns in a recent issue of Theology (2004): �What�s Under the Microscope? Revisiting E.C. Hoskyns on the Object of New Testament Study.� Theology 107: 3-13.

      Interestingly, in that article Bockmuehl quotes C.F.D. Moule as making a similar comment to John's, viz, that Hoskyns was a bit too comfortable in adopting the standard positions as 'assured results' without sufficient critical scrutiny.

      Cheers
