Wilfred Lawrence Knox

1886-1950. Anglican churchman and NT scholar. He was the son of a famous evangelical bishop, E.A. Knox,* and the brother of an even more famous Roman Catholic cleric and writer (Ronald A.*). Wilfred was the scholar of the family and was elected to membership in the British Academy. Educated at Trinity College, Oxford, he was ordained priest in 1915; he moved to Cambridge in 1920, where he remained, except for two years in London, until his death. His early writings were primarily apologetic in nature and aimed at a defense of “liberal” Anglo-Catholicism. His major scholarly works include St Paul and the Church of Jerusalem (1925), St Paul and the Church of the Gentiles (1939), Some Early Hellenistic Elements in Primitive Christianity (1944), and many articles in the Journal of Theological Studies.
