Julian White

Henry Julian White (27 August 1859 – 16 July 1934) was an English biblical scholar.[1]

Henry Julian White was born in Islington, north London,[2] the second son of Henry John White. He was educated at Christ Church, Oxford, matriculating on 11 October 1878, graduating B.A. in 1882 (M.A. 1885).[3] He was ordained in 1886, becoming the domestic chaplain of John Wordsworth in the same year. He taught at Oxford from 1895 and King's College London from 1905. He assisted Wordsworth in producing an edition of the Vulgate Bible. He was also coauthor of A Grammar of the Vulgate. He was Dean of Christ Church in Oxford from 1920 to 1934.

White supported the appointment of Albert Einstein as a Student (Fellow) at Christ Church, despite opposition by J. G. C. Anderson on nationalistic and perhaps even xenophobic (according to White) grounds in the early 1930s.[4]
