    Written from the perspective of an irate defender of religious tests, this describes some of the intellectuals who 'are the Promoters / Of this Godless movement, / To lift the Universities / Out of their old grooves', including Benjamin Jowett who is considered 'an irrational / Rationalist sheep-biter', John F D Maurice 'a sensational / Hazy, crazy writer', George Rolleston 'a Materia—/ Medica—listic squabbler', and Charles Kingsley 'a sciolist, / And Socialist rowdy rollick-us'.
