1780. John NORRIS, Esq., of Whitton, in the county of Norfolk, by his Will gave to the University the sum of £12 per annum, as a prize for the best Essay on a Theological Subject. He directed that £7. 48. should be expended on a Gold Medal, and the remainder in Books, namely, the Bible, Bp Sherlock's Discourses, Leland against Deistical Writers, and Pearson on the Creed.

According to the account of Dr Knox, Mr Norris was induced to leave this prize, as well as the Stipend for a Professor of Divinity, by reading some extracts from Bishop Porteus's eighth Sermon, which describes the advantages which ought to result from Academical Education.

The Subject is proposed every year in November, by the Norrisian Professor of Divinity. Candidates are required to be between twenty and thirty years of age, under the standing of M.A., and to have attended, in one year, twenty lectures of the Norrisian Professor. Each Candidate must send in his Essay, inscribed with a motto, to one of the judges, on or before the tenth day preceding Palm Sunday, and his name in a sealed

N

letter, with the same motto, inscribed on the envelope. The sealed letter of the writer of the best Essay only is opened, and the rest of them are burnt unopened*. The successful candidate is required to print and publish his Essay, and he may become more than once a candidate for the Prize. No doctrine must be advanced in the Essay contrary to the Liturgy, Articles, and Homilies of the Church of England.

Subjects of the Norrisian Essay: 1781 The Advantages of Revelation. 1782 Jesus Christ considered as an Example to mankind. 1783 The necessity of a Redeemer. 1784 The Literary Beauties of Scripture. 1785 The Rewards of Eternity. 1786 The Goodness of God, as manifested in the Mission of Jesus Christ. 1787 The Advantages of the Knowledge revealed to mankind concerning the Holy

Spirit. 1788 Voluntary Neglect of one duty cannot be compensated by strictness of atten

tion to other duties. 1789 When the fulness of the time was come, God sent forth his Son. Gal. iv. 4. 1790 The manner in which the Christian Religion was intended to improve

Morality. 1791 The Propagation of the Christian Religion. 1792 The Old Testament is not contrary to the New. 1793 in what sense Jesus Christ hath “brought Life and Immortality to light

through the Gospel.” 1794 The Christian Doctrine of Justification by Faith is not destructive of the

Principles of Natural Virtue. 1795 The Holy Scriptures, rightly understood, do not give encouragement to Enthu

siasm or Superstition. 1796 The Grounds contained in Scripture for expecting a future Restoration of the

Jews. 1797 The Advantages, which result to Revelation from its being conveyed in the

form of History. 1798 The state of the Jews since the death of Christ, as affording an argument for

the truth of Christianity. 1799 The conduct and character of St Peter considered, as giving evidence to the

truth of the Christian Religion. 1800 The Christian Religion has, in its effects, been favourable to human happiness 1801 The difference of opinion among Christians affords no argument against

Christianity. 1802 On the method of illustrating the Scriptures from the relations of modern

Travellers in Palestine, and the neigbouring countries. 1803 What are the causes that Christianity spread itself so much in the ages imme

diately succeeding the Age of the Apostles, and so little ever since? 1804 The Providence of God. 1805 The Internal Evidence of the Religion of Moses. 1806 The External Evidence of the Religion of Moses. 1807 The Fulness of the time when Christ came into the World. 1808 Public Worship. 1809 The Christian Sabbath. 1810 The Connexion between Religion and Learning. 1811 The divisions of Christians are not inconsistent with the truths of Christianity, 1812 The conduct of the Apostles of Christ before his Ascension considered in itself,

and in comparison with their conduct afterward. 1813 The Literary Beauties of the New Testament. 1814 “The Baptism of John, was it from Heaven, or of Men ?" 1815 The treachery of Judas, and the failings of the other Apostles, are consistent

with the Divine Mission of Jesus Christ. 1816 The Use and Necessity of Revelation.

This same practice is followed with respect to all Prizes at Cambridge.
