Thomas Arnold (1795-1842) was Head of Rugby School in England from 1828, and, for the final year of his life, Professor of History at Oxford University. He played a pivotal role in the British educational system, and was known for his then controversial ideas on schooling and religion. First published in 1844, these two volumes present a diverse collection of Arnold's correspondence, compiled by his friend and former pupil, Dean of Westminster, Arthur Penrhyn Stanley (1815-81). Interspersed with a biographical commentary by Stanley, the letters in Volume 1 reveal Arnold's early life and work, followed by his career at Rugby up to 1835. In them he discusses his ideas for reform in both teaching and religion, and reveals his unfailing dedication to both. Lending a fascinating insight into school and church life in the nineteenth century, Arnold's writings continue to interest scholars of both religion and education.
