Tempora Mutantur (Apropos of the University Tests Bill)
Universities, Religion, Dissent, Secularism, Politics, Controversy
Describes the dispute between various leading statesmen over the bill to abolish religious tests for students entering Oxford and Cambridge universities. Notes that 'Twixt Dissenters on one side, the Pope on the other, / And Huxley, who Faith under Science would Smother; / With her tests torn away, and her orders made delible, / Sequestrations unlawful and livings not sellable; / Her King Storks thrust on one side, to raise her King Logs, / The old Church of England is gone to the dogs'.
