Bishop Brian Walton

From Tweddell's Bards and Authors 1872

Bishop Brian Walton.

“He lived in troubled times. Let us forget

How paltry squabbles about tithes would fret

His soul and those of others: nor need we

Fight o’er again, with paper chivalry,

The struggle anent lectures. ’T is alone 5

As scholar Brian Walton will be known

Age after age: for ne’er will be forgot

His famous bible cleped the Polyglot”

Peter Proletarius’ (George Markham Tweddell )

From the intro to the chapter on Brian Walton in [Bards & Authors, p. 224]
