Pied beauty-Peace-Spring and Fall: to a young child-No worst, there is none-Hurrahing in harvest-The Windhover: to Christ our Lord
Richard Bentley (1662-1742) by W. B. Stanford
Professor of Greek at Trinity College, Dublin
Bentley was the last great scholar to excel in both Greek and Latin studies. Others since him have been his equal in one or the other, no one in both. Like the later Roman Empire after Theodosius, his kingdom was divided between West and East. British scholars maintained much of his skill in textual criticism; the Germans inherited his mastery in the so-called ' higher criticism.'

There are more than 5 million programme listings in Genome. This is a
historical record of the planned output and the BBC services of any
given time. It should be viewed in this context and with the
understanding that it reflects the attitudes and standards of its time
- not those of today.
To read scans of the Radio Times magazines from the 1920s, 30s, 40s and
50s, you can navigate by issue.
Genome is a digitised version of the Radio Times from 1923 to 2009 and
is made available for internal research purposes only. You will need to
obtain the relevant third party permissions for any use, including use in
programmes, online etc.
This internal version of Genome, which includes all the magazine covers,
images and articles as well as the programme listings from the Radio
Times, is different to the version of BBC Genome that is available
externally/to the public. It is only available inside the BBC network.
