Munkhouse, Richard, Dd
Munkhouse, Richard, D.D.
an English divine of some note, flourished near the opening of this century. He was vicar of Wakefield, and died about 1811. He was noted as a pulpit orator, but his sermons, of which several series have been published (Lond. 1799, 8vo; 1802, 8vo; Twenty-six Occas. Discourses, 1805, 3 volumes, 8vo; 1808, 3 volumes, 8vo; 1813, 8vo), indicate that he was not a powerful speaker, but an able writer and a good Biblical scholar.
