Description

Excerpt from The Disestablishment of Religion in Oxford, the Betrayal of a Sacred Trust-Words of Warning to the University: A Sermon Preached Before the University of Oxford, at S. Mary-the-Virgin's, on the Sunday Next Before Advent (November 21st, 1880) Not unaware am I that, as the ages roll out, it will sometimes happen that Endowments left for one good purpose must needs be diverted to another, - or else must be wasted. As when a few years ago it was ordered that a fund anciently created for the Redemp tion ofcaptives should be applied to some other object of Christian benevolence: the practice of privateering in the Mediterranean having long since ceased. But no such plea can be urged in defence of the pro posed scheme for the alienation to secular purposes of endowments entrusted to Colleges for Me support of RE ligion.
