Born on 27th of November 1710
Died on 3rd of November 1787
Robert Lowth was an important cleric in his time, holding the bishoprics of St David’s, Oxford, and London, but his greatest impact was not through obtaining those positions in the church hierarchy, but for his literary work: as professor of poetry at Oxford (1841), and subsequently, he innovatively studied and wrote about the language of the Bible as poetry.
