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.
