Tait Archibald

Tait, Archibald Campbell (1811-82). Archbishop of Canterbury, was born at Edinburg and studied at the universities of Glasgow and Oxford. He opposed the Oxford Movement, and was one of the "Four Tutors" who protested publicly against the construction put upon the articles in Tract XC. He was headmaster of Rugby 1842-49, Dean of Carlisle 1849-56, and Bishop of London from 1856 to 1868, when he was made Archbishop of Canterbury. Dr. Tait was a hard-working prelate, and he had a strong leaning to compromise.
