John William Burgon, Dean of Chichester (see here),
He opposed the new ideas from geology of an old earth and from biology of evolution by natural selection.
He opposed allowing women and non-Anglicans into universities.
He opposed the disestablishment of the Irish church.
died 4th Aug 1888, age 74 yrs,
bur Holywell Cemetery, Oxford, with parents.
These sermons show why Dean Burgon is an icon to creationists and fundamentalists today.
In this sermon, Burgon rejects almost all the major findings of 19th century astronomy, geology, biology and palaeontology because they are incompatible with the Bible. He even expresses confidence (in 1860) that when the scientists think again, they will realise they were wrong and the Bible was right.
