About William Smith

Sir William Smith (1813-1893) was a classical and biblical scholar who conceived, wrote, edited and contributed to many works of reference and textbooks, including the three great classical dictionaries (recently re-issued by I.B.Tauris) which made him a household name. From 1853 to 1869 he was classical examiner to the University of London, where he became a member of the Senate, and he was for twenty-five years editor of the prestigious Quarterly Review. A member of the Royal Commisssion on Copyright, he was knighted in 1892. Michael Ledger-Lomas is Lecturer in the History of Christianity in Britain, King's College, London. He is a director of the five-year interdisciplinary research project The Bible and Antiquity in Nineteenth Century Britain, funded by the European Union. His recent books include Cities of God: the Bible and Archaeology in Britain (co-editor, 2013) and Dissent and the Bible in Britain (co-editor, 2013).
