Pusey, Edward Bouverie, D.D., D.C.L.
an eminent Anglican divine, son of the late Hon. Philip Bouverie (half- brother of the first earl of Radnor), who assumed the name of Pusey by royal license, was born in 1800. He was educated at Christ Church College; Oxford, where he graduated with high honor in 1822, and the next year was elected to a fellowship in Oriel College. After studying in Germany for two years, he was appointed in 1828 regius professor of Hebrew at Oxford University, a position to which is attached a canonry in Christ Church, and he retained these offices until his death, September 16, 1882. His connection with the Tracts for the Times, and the controversies growing out of them, are detailed under PUSSYISMS SEE PUSSYISMS (q.v.). Dr. Pusey was a High-churchman of the purest morals and the stanchest orthodoxy, and also a scholar of no ordinary character. Besides his doctrinal writings, he published several exegetical works (on the minor prophets and Daniel), and a number of small volumes on Church-history.
