English author and philosopher Bishop Thomas Burgess (1756-1837) spent his early career advocating for the emancipation of slaves and evangelizing among the poor. In 1803 he was appointed Bishop of St. David’s, where he remained for the next twenty years, and in that position he founded and liberally endowed St. David’s College, now the University of Wales, Lampeter. This book gathers together essays that use Bishop Burgess’s life as a starting point to uncover the links between the academic, religious, and social cultures of Britain, Europe, and North America in the eighteenth and nineteenth centuries.
