Arthur Penrhyn Stanley (1815–1881), born in Cheshire and educated at Rugby School under Thomas Arnold, was ordained in 1839, the same year he was elected a fellow of University College. For ten years he tutored at the college, and he published several works that sealed his reputation as a gifted literary writer and preacher. In 1851, Stanley was appointed to a canonry in Canterbury Cathedral; he published a popular work on its history. At the close of 1856, Stanley was appointed Regius professor of ecclesiastical history at Oxford; then, in 1863, he was appointed dean of Westminster Abbey. A prolific writer, Stanley wrote dozens of books and was an avid letter writer from a very young age.
