Terrot Reaveley Glover

1869-1943. English Baptist scholar. Son of a Baptist minister in Bristol, he graduated from Cambridge, became fellow of St. John's College there, then in 1896 went to Ontario as professor of Latin in Queen's University, Kingston. He returned to teach at Cambridge in 1901 and later became university lecturer in ancient history (1911-39). He traveled widely, particularly in the United States. His classical scholarship refused to segregate the emergent Christian tradition from its environment. Thus he was at home in The World of the New Testament (1931) as much as in the Greek world (From Pericles to Philip, 1917). As a teacher who loved the classics he sought their instructive discipline, yet he willingly assisted in the editing of Scripture for little children (1924). Among his many other works were The Conflict of Religions in the Early Roman Empire (1909) and The Jesus of History (1917).
