Paley, William (17431806)

Paley, William, “one of the most masculine and truly English of thinkers and writers,” born at Peterborough; studied at Christ's College, Cambridge, where he was Senior Wrangler, and obtained a Fellowship, held afterwards various Church preferments, and died archdeacon of Carlisle; was a clear writer and cogent reasoner on common-sense lines, and was long famous, if less so now, as the author of “Horæ Paulinæ,” “Evidences of Christianity,” and “Natural Theology,” as well as “Moral and Political Philosophy”; they are genuine products of the time they were written in, but are out of date now (17431806).
