Whately, Richard (17871863)

Whately, Richard, archbishop of Dublin, born in London; studied at Oriel College, Oxford, of which he became a Fellow, and had Arnold, Keble, Newman, Pusey, and other eminent men as contemporaries; was a man of liberal views and sympathies, and much regarded for his sagacity and his skill in dialectics; his post as archbishop was no enviable one; is best known by his “Logic,” for a time the standard work of the subject; he opposed the Tractarian movement, but was too latitudinarian for the evangelical party (17871863).
