Chapter V. Restrospect and Prospect.
THE restoration of the time-honoured religious house of S. Augustine, Canterbury, and its re-dedication as a Missionary College, mark an epoch in the history of our Church to which the future ecclesiastical historian of the nineteenth century cannot fail to draw attention. A convenient Handbook respecting the history of the College has been often asked for, and in reply to many requests this little work has been written.
In its compilation I have to acknowledge my obligations to Thorn's 'Chronicle' in the Decem Scriptores; to Thomas of Elmham's Historia Monasterii S. Augustini, edited for the 'Rolls [v/vi] Series' by Archdeacon Hardwick; to Hasted's Kent; to the S. Augustine's College Calendar for 1855; to the Occasional Papers, Nos. 233 and 234; to Articles in the Archæologia Cantiana, the Ecclesiologist for August 1848, and the Colonial Church Chronicle of the same year; and last, not least, to Dr. Bailey's Twenty-five Years at S. Augustine's. I am bound also to acknowledge the courtesy of the Editor of the Church Quarterly Review for permission to reprint portions of an article I wrote on 'Edward Coleridge and the Rise of Missionary Colleges,' in April 1885, and especially the great kindness of Canon Scott-Robertson and my colleague the Rev. T. H. Dodson in looking over the proof-sheets for me.
