100 years ago

War of the Professors

100 years ago: PERHAPS it was scarcely necessary for the Oxford Divinity Professors, with whom are associated other well-known Oxford scholars, to draw up a reply to the German "Address to Evangelical Christians". . . Point by point it shows the professors of German Kultur to be in the wrong

A hindrance to religion

100 years ago: We are hoping that the war will recall us as a nation to the good ways that we have forsaken, one of which was the due observance of the Lord's Day

Priests’ combat is spiritual

100 years ago: THE Bishop of Birmingham [Henry Russell Wakefield], writing to the Times, has defended the position taken by the Archbishop of Canterbury on the question whether a priest should be allowed to serve as a combatant in the war

Drill sergeants’ language

100 years ago: LORD KITCHENER has taken pains to impress upon the men of his new army the duty of sobriety. This is well, but from all we hear, we are inclined to think that a word from his lordship on temperance of language would not come amiss

The King’s loyal dominions

100 years ago: In every corner of the King's dominions at home and overseas there is a superb rally to a cause which all alike feel to be their common cause

Pope Benedict XV elected

100 years ago: The Church Times congratulated the Roman conclave on choosing the strongest cardinal as the new pope, Benedict XV. "He is younger than most Popes have been at their accession, and this makes a continuous policy for a number of years probable."

Conscription needed

100 years ago: IT SEEMS that recruiting is going on briskly, especially in the last few days, but young men are not flocking to the colours with the speed that apparently Lord Kitchener would wish

German atrocities reported

100 years ago: THE English newspapers are full of accounts of wicked and wanton barbarities perpetrated by the German army in Belgium, and refugees from Germany tell us that the German newspapers provide counter-charges of the same kind against the Belgians

Death of Pope Pius

100 years ago:  HASTENED by the cataclysm which has fallen upon the European world, the death of the Pope has come as a shock to those whose thoughts have been absorbed by the news from the area of war

England an armed camp

100 years ago: FOR little more than a week we have been in a state of war, yet within that short space we seem to have lived a whole life-time. Sudden as a bolt from the blue there has fallen on us the necessity wholly to re-order our lives in unaccustomed ways.
