Seeley, Sir John Robert

Seeley, Sir John Robert, author of “Ecce Homo,” born in London; studied at Cambridge, became professor of History there in 1869 on Kingsley's retirement; his “Ecce Homo” was published in 1865, a piece of perfect literary workmanship, but which in its denial of the self-originated spirit of Christ offended orthodox belief and excited much adverse criticism; wrote in 1882 a work entitled “Natural Religion,” in which he showed the same want of sympathy with supernatural ideas, as also several historical works (1834-1895).
