DIVINITY PROFESSOR'S PREMIUMS. THE Regius Professor of Divinity is bound by Statute to hold an annual Examination in the month of November, for two days, during four hours each day: on the morning of the first day, in the Old Testament; on the afternoon, in the New Testament; on the morning of the second day, in Ecclesiastical History; and on the afternoon of the second day in the Creeds, Articles,

and Liturgy of the United Church of England and Ireland. This Examination is open to all Students in Divinity. Such persons as have voluntarily removed their names from the College Books are permitted to restore them, for the purpose of this Examination, free of charge, upon mere payment of the Junior Bursar's fee.

As the Statute which appoints the Examination has left the Course undetermined, it has been the custom of the Professor merely to recommend certain books, without assigning any limits to the reading of the Student. It has, however, appeared to the present Professor and his Assistants that, without materially affecting the extent of the Course, greater accuracy might be obtained by marking out the books in which the Candidates would be expected to answer. As the Examiners are frequently changed, no permanent arrangement can be made, but the following may be considered as the present Course, in addition to the books read in the ordinary Lectures and Examinations. It is obvious that no Commentary can meet all the wishes of the inquiring Student, but his attention may be especially directed to Patrick on the Pentateuch, and Whitby on the New Testament, to the Commentaries of Scott and Doddridge; and for the text and criticism of the New Testament, Alford, Bengel, Middleton, and Olshausen, may be consulted.

ARCHBISHOP KING'S DIVINITY PRIZES. THESE Prizes were founded by the Board in the year 1836. They are called Archbishop King's Divinity Prizes, because they are given at an annual Examination held by Archbishop King's Divinity Lecturer.

This Examination is held in Michaelmas Term; and such Students only can be candidates for the Prizes as are selected by the Examiners at the general Divinity Examination held at the end of the preceding Divinity Term.

The subjects of the course examined in for the Prizes, in addition to that appointed for the general Divinity Examination (page 48), are as follow : Greek.-Four Gospels (with special reference to their harmony).

Bishop Sherlock's Discourses and Dissertations on Prophecy. Davison on Prophecy. Hengstenberg's Christology (Arnold's edition), to the end of the Messianic Prophecies of Isaiah, § 486.

Socinian Controversy.—Magee on the Atonement, Vols. II. and III. Pearson on the Creed, the Articles omitted in the general Examination.

Candidates for the Prizes will also be expected to be acquainted with the principal questions discussed in the Public Course of Lectures delivered by Archbishop King's Lecturer during the year of their attendance on his Lectures ; and to have examined, 'in the writers referred to by him, the infidel arguments at least on the following points :

On the Credibility of a Revelation. On the Sufficiency of the proof of a Revelation from Miracle and Prophecy.

On the Possibility of establishing the Reality of Miracles by Testimony:

On the Place of Prophecy in the Proof of the Christian Revelation.

Two Prizes are given to the best answerers : and Certificates to such as answer sufficiently. Extra Prizes are also frequently given on the recommendation of the Examiners.

The Certificate cannot be given to any Student until he has completed his whole Divinity Course, and obtained the Divinity Testimonium.
