- Armitage Robinson
Joseph Armitage Robinson (1858-1933) was a priest in the
Church of Englandand scholar. He was successively Dean of Westminster (1902-1911) and of Wells (1911- ). He was educated at Liverpool Collegeand Christ's College, Cambridgeof which he became a Fellow. It has been suggested that the move to Wells was arranged to avoid friction in the run-up to the coronation of George V.
As Dean of Wells Robinson enjoyed close links with
Downside Abbey. He also critically explored the origins of the Glastonbury legendsto which the Glastonbury Festivalhad revived attention.
A renowned scholar in
patristics(he was particularly known for his work on the Lausiac History), Armitage Robinson was a participant in the bilateral Anglican-Roman Catholic Malines Conversations. He held honorary doctorates from Gottingen and Halle.
