Rev. Frederick Temple (1821-1902) was an English academic, teacher, churchman and Archbishop of Canterbury from 1896 until his death. He was born in Santa Maura, one of the Ionian Islands. His family was not wealthy, and Frederick knew he would have to earn his own living. He took the first step by winning a scholarship at Balliol College, Oxford, before he was seventeen. In 1842 he took a double first and was elected fellow of Balliol, and lecturer in mathematics and logic. Four years later he was ordained, and, with the aim of improving the education of the very poor, he accepted the headship of Kneller Hall. Temple had a lifelong interest in Science and Religion. In 1860 at the famous meeting of the British Association which saw the debate between Thomas Huxley and Samuel Wilberforce, Temple preached a sermon welcoming the insights of evolution. In his Eight Brampton Lectures on The Relations Between Religion and Science (1884) he states clearly that "doctrine of Evolution is in no sense whatever antagonistic to the teachings of Religion".
