Philip Edward Pusey

1830-1880. English scholar. Only son of E.B. Pusey,* he was both deaf and crippled. He graduated from Oxford in 1854, and when his physical defects prevented his ordination, he resolved to devote his life to helping his father. This he did by preparing a critical edition of the Peshitta and the works of Cyril of Alexandria. Despite his ill-health, he pursued his studies with exemplary thoroughness, visiting libraries throughout Europe and the Near East.
