Mccaul, Alexander an eminent Anglican divine, was born about the opening of this century, and was educated at King's College, London, where he afterwards became professor of divinity. He was also prebend of St. Paul's, London, since 1845. He is noted, however, not so much on account of the high positions he filled as an ecclesiastic, as for his missionary labors among the Jews, a task for which his great erudition and uncommon familiarity with the Hebrew language and literature peculiarly fitted him. He died in 1863. Dr. McCaul left, besides Sketches of Judaism and the Jews (Lond. 1838, 8vo), The Old Paths, or a Comparison of Mod. Judaisnm wiih the Rel. of Moses and the Prophets (2d ed. 1868, 12mo); a lot of minor theological works, and a host of sermomns; for a list of which see Darling, Cyclop. Bibliog. 2:1902.
