About this product
- DescriptionHead of Rugby School for over a decade, Thomas Arld (1795-1842) became Regius Professor of Modern History at Oxford in the final year of his life. Kwn for his controversial ideas on schooling and religion, he was a prominent and influential figure in the history of British education. First published in 1844, this two-volume work presents a diverse collection of Arld's correspondence, compiled by his friend and former pupil Arthur Penrhyn Stanley (1815-81), Dean of Westminster. Interspersed with biographical commentary by Stanley, the letters in Volume 1 illuminate Arld's early life and work, and his career at Rugby up to 1835. In them he discusses his ideas for reform in both teaching and religion, revealing his unfailing dedication to both. Offering insights into the role of school and church in the early nineteenth century, Arld's writings continue to interest scholars of both religion and education.
