Handley Carr Glyn Moule

1841-1920. Bishop of Durham. Youngest of eight sons of the vicar of Fordington, Dorchester, he like the others was educated at home. After a brilliant career at Cambridge he taught at Marlborough (1865), was ordained (1867), and was curate at Fordington until going to Trinity as junior dean (1873). He became the first principal of Ridley Hall Theological College, Cambridge, in 1881, and Norrisian professor of divinity in 1899. In 1901 he succeeded Westcott as bishop of Durham. Moule was a convinced evangelical, but was able to understand other views. He represented evangelicals at the Round Table Conference on the Holy Communion (1900) and in 1908 chaired the missionary section of the Pan- Anglican Congress. He was closely associated with the Keswick Convention.* A profound scholar, he could speak and write for ordinary people. He wrote many hymns and poems, and his works include expositions and commentaries on nearly all the Epistles, as well as books on devotion and a down-to-earth work, Outlines of Christian Doctrine.
