Barlow Manuscripts



Introduction

At Oxford Thomas Barlow (1607-91) was elected a fellow of The Queen's College in 1633, Bodley's Librarian in 1652, Provost of Queen's in 1658, and Lady Margaret Professor of Divinity in 1660; in 1675 he became Bishop of Lincoln. He bequeathed his manuscripts and printed books to the Bodleian, with the stipulation that any duplicates should be passed to the library of his college. The manuscripts (numbering over fifty) are miscellaneous in date and content, whilst the more extensive collection of printed books (some 6,000 items, which were given the shelfmark 'Linc.') include large numbers of pamphlets concerning 17th-century political and ecclesiastical affairs. Letters and papers by Barlow himself or relating to his life are not in this collection but are scattered elsewhere, chiefly in other Bodleian collections and at Queen's.
