Egerton Robert Neve (1766�1818). In 1762 he was appointed by his college to the rectory of Letcomb-Bassett, Berkshire, but he vacated it two years later, on his preferment to the rectory of Godington, Oxfordshire, which he kept for the rest of his life. � �From 1783 to his death in 1798 Neve held the Lady Margaret professorship of divinity at Oxford and the sixth prebendal stall in Worcester Cathedral. He was also chaplain of Merton College, Oxford, and the second Bampton lecturer� (Wikip.). � Cardinal Pole �was an English cardinal of the Roman Catholic Church and the last Roman Catholic Archbishop of Canterbury, holding the office during the Counter Reformation. �He is known for his strong condemnation of Machiavelli�s book The Prince, which he read in Italy, and on which he commented: �I found this type of book to be written by an enemy of the human race. It explains every means whereby religion, justice and any inclination toward virtue could be destroyed�� (Wikip.). REFERENCES: ESTC, T71415. (Inventory #: LV2142)
