Initially published in 1885, this collection of essays by members of the University of Oxford represents the finest of late nineteenth century scholarship. The set is long out-of-print and difficult to find even in libraries. Volume One focuses on biblical archaeology and criticism while the succeeding volumes are essays in biblical and patristic criticism.

Rogers "The 'Galatia' of St. Paul and the 'Galatic Territory' of Acts" by William M. Ramsay "Acta Pilati" by F.C. Conybeare "Recent Theories on the Origin and Nature of the Tetragammaton" by S.R. Driver "The Text of the Codex Rossanensis" by William Sanday "On the Dialects Spoken in Palestine in the Time of Christ" by Adolf Neubauer "The Argument of Romans 9-11" by Charles Gore "The Text of the Canons of Ancyra" by R.B.
