Beresford James Kidd

1864-1948. Church historian. Son of a Church of England clergyman, he was educated at Oxford, was ordained (1887), served as assistant curate in Oxford (1887- 1900), and lecturer in theology at Pembroke College (1902-11). He was vicar of St. Paul's, Oxford (1904-20), and in 1920 became warden of Keble College, where he remained until retirement (1939). Kidd's publications were concerned with the history of Christianity, beginning with the Thirty-Nine Articles (1899) and the English (1901) and Continental (1902) Reformation, pursuing in detail the church to 461 (1922), adding the Eastern Churches from 451 (1927), and the Counter-Reformation (1933). His work in the history of Christianity was based on careful study of its documents, illustrative collections of which he also published. Throughout his career he pursued the matter of Anglican catholicity, and later wrote on Roman primacy (1936) and Validity (1937).
