Thomas Hartwell Horne

1780-1862. Librarian and Protestant biblical commentator. Born in London and educated at Christ's Hospital (where he was a contemporary of Samuel Taylor Coleridge), he became clerk to a barrister, undertaking varying literary work in his spare time. At first a Wesleyan, he was ordained in the Church of England (1819), later joining the staff of the British Museum (1824), where he worked on the compilation of the catalog for many years. Horne was the author of more than forty books, many of them on Christian apologetics and bibliography. In his earlier days he cataloged the Harleian MSS for the British Museum; later he edited Charles Simeon's Horae Homileticae, a twenty-one volume commentary on the Bible. He is remembered chiefly for his Critical Study of the Holy Scriptures (3 vols., 1818), which was widely used for half a century by students.
