Catalogue Of Papers Of B. W. Newton
An important chapter of the history of Biblical interpretation and of nineteenth century Church History in general is only beginning to receive its due meed of scholarly attention: that which concerned such vigorous interpreters as J. N. Darby, B. W. Newton and S. P. Tregelles. The sources for this study have not yet received much systematic treatment, and it is encouraging to learn of a splendid collection of papers, original and copies, of Newton and Tregelles, carefully preserved in the possession of Mr. C. E. Fry of the Isle of Wight. A checklist of the papers of Newton for the crucial years 1845-1848, concerned with events at Plymouth and containing correspondence with Darby, Lord Congleton, Wigram and others, has been compiled by Mr. T. C. F. Stunt of Sidney Sussex College, a former resident of Tyndale House, and is available in the Tyndale Library. Mr. Stunt has added a brief introduction and a list of some early Brethren pamphlets in the Fry collection.
