Dowling: περί Παυλικιανών /
Dowling: Concerning Paulicians


* John Goulter Dowling,
A letter to the rev. S.R. Maitland on the opinions of the Paulicians,
[Επιστολή προς τον αιδ. S.R. Maitland σχετικά με τις απόψεις των Παυλικιανών],
1835. [English/Αγγλικά, PDF]


Dowling, John Goulter (1805–1841), Church of England clergyman and schoolmaster, the eldest son of John Dowling, innkeeper of the King's Head, Westgate Street, Gloucester, alderman, and sometime mayor of Gloucester, and his wife, Elizabeth Goulter of Hawkesbury, was born on 18 April 1805 in Gloucester. He was educated at the Crypt Grammar School, Gloucester, and at Wadham College, Oxford (1823–6). In 1827, soon after taking his BA degree, he became headmaster of the Crypt Grammar School, appointed by the governors, the corporation of Gloucester. He was ordained deacon in 1828 and priest in 1829 by Bishop Christopher Bethell, then of Gloucester. In 1834 Lord Chancellor Brougham presented him to the rectory of St Mary-de-Crypt with St Owen, Gloucester. He remained as headmaster of the school, and held both positions until his death. In addition to several sermons, Dowling published An Introduction to the Critical Study of Ecclesiastical History (1838), and Notitia scriptorum ss. patrum aliorumque veteris ecclesiae monumentorum (1839), which was described in the Gentleman's Magazine as ‘a valuable assistance to all engaged in theological researches’. He died on 9 January 1841 in Gloucester. Held in high esteem, he was commemorated by the stained glass in the east window of his church, placed there by his pupils and the people of Gloucester. [J.
