Christopher Collard

A most successful Cambridge don at Trinity College, Tutor and (at the age of 25) Regius Professor of Greek – but also a churchman, made Dean of Peterborough in 1822, and in 1830 both Canon of Westminster and Bishop of Gloucester, a see he administered with great fairness and generosity. His conventional Latin editions of Euripides’ Hippolytus (1811) and Alcestis (1816) were modest and sound, work he later developed in two much later English editions of the two Iphigenia-plays (1840's). With his Trinity friend Charles Blomfield (also a ‘Greek play bishop’) Monk early founded and conducted the important journal Museum Criticum, and edited Porson's Adversaria (1812); and it was to Blomfield that Monk dedicated his authoritative Life of Bentley (1830), the great 17th Century Trinity Master.
