Excerpt from book: ENGLAND DURING THE LATTER HALF OF THE THIRTEENTH CENTURY The title of these lectures, as announced, is England and the English in the Thirteenth Century. On looking at the syllabus, however, you will see that the illustrations are drawn almost entirely from the latter half of the century. To this period I propose confining myselfto the later years of Henry III., which were occupied in the conflict between the King and the Barons, and to the reign of Edward L, when the principles asserted in that conflict were developed and matured.

J. B. LIGHTFOOT (1828-1889) was an outstanding British New Testament scholar. He worked with F. J. A. Hort and B. F. Westcott at Cambridge University to produce a New Testament commentary based on a reliable Greek text. His work in demonstrating the first-century origin of the New Testament books helped demolish the TUbingen school of biblical criticism. Along with his Philippians, his commentaries on Galatians and Colossians/Philemon are still considered landmarks of biblical study and exposition.
