Arthur Cayley Headlam

1862-1947. Anglican bishop and theologian. Educated at Winchester and New College, Oxford, he was successively fellow of All Souls (1885-96), parish priest at Welwyn (1896-1903), principal and professor of theology at King's College, London (1903-18), regius professor of divinity at Oxford (1918-23), and bishop of Gloucester (1923-45). His early work was concentrated in the area of NT, where he is best known for his collaboration with W. Sanday* in a classic commentary on Romans (1895). His theological position was that of a moderate conservative; one of his chief concerns was Christian unity. In addition to important essays in Hastings's Dictionary of the Bible (1898-1902), Headlam wrote St. Paul and Christianity (1913), The Miracles of the [[New Testament]] (1914), The Doctrine of the Church and Christian Reunion (1920), The Fourth Gospel as History (1948), and numerous other books and essays.
