Matthew Parker and His Books


This book comprises the three Sanders Lectures delivered at the University of Cambridge in 1990, taking as their subject Matthew Parker, Master of Corpus Christi College Cambridge, and Archibishop of Canterbury to Elizabeth I. These lectures discuss his significant role as a collector and conservator of books and ancient records, and as `the chief retriever of our ancient native language'.
