MASTER AND FELLOWS OF ST JOHN'S COLLEGE, CAMBRIDGE

The letters and writings of a 19th-century Bishop of Natal, John Colenso, were unveiled at an exhibition at St John's College, Cambridge, earlier this month. Colenso, a missionary who pro­voked outrage by ques­tioning the historical relia­bility of parts of the Old Testa­ment, also scandalised Vic­­­torian Britain with his sym­pathies for the native Africans in Natal and Zululand. The exhibition,The Missionary Col­lege, includes Bishop Colenso's dic­tion­aries of Zulu for fellow mission­aries to use, and also his writings on the Pentateuch, which conclude that Moses was not their author. The exhibition runs until 17 April
