TURNER, CUTHBERT HAMILTON
Ecclesiastical historian and scholar; b. Paddington, July 7, 1860; d. Oxford, Oct. 10, 1930. He was educated
in Winchester and at Oxford where he spent most of his adult life teaching and in positions of honor. In 1885 he was appointed lecturer in theology of St. John's College and in 1889 he became professor of ecclesiastical history. He was editor of the Journal of Theological Studies from 1899 to 1902. Since he was keenly interested in textual criticism he concentrated on the material of early Western canon law and New Testament studies. He is most noted for his Ecclesiae occidentalis monumenta iuris antiquissima (2 v. Oxford 1899–1913) and Studies in Early Church History (Oxford 1912).
