George Croly, a British clergyman and author, born in Dublin in August, 1780, died in London, Nov. 24, 1860. He was educated at Trinity college, Dublin, and, having become noted as an eloquent preacher and a versatile writer, was presented in 1835 with the rectorship of St. Stephen's, Walbrook, London. His literary career began with a poem entitled "Paris in 1815," in which he describes the works of art collected by Napoleon in the Louvre, prior to their restoration to the various galleries of Europe after the surrender of Paris. This was followed in 1820 by the "Angel of the World, an Arabian Tale," and by several satires and lyrics, first collected in 1830. In 1824 his comedy of "Pride shall have a Fall" was performed at Covent Garden theatre with great success. He published in 1827 "Sala-thiel, a Story of the Past, the Present, and the Future," founded on the legend of the wandering Jew. It was followed by two other works of fiction, "Tales of the Great St. Bernard" and "Marston" (1846). He edited the works of Pope (1835), and the select works of Jeremy Taylor (1838). To the department of historical and biographical literature he contributed the "Personal History of George IV." (1830), "Political Life of Burke" (1840), and "Historical Sketches, Speeches, and Characters" (1842). On topics more strictly professional, he published "The Apocalypse of St. John, a new Interpretation " (1827), " Divine Providence, or the three Cycles of Revelation" (1834), "The True Idea of Baptism" (1850), " Scenes from Scripture" (1851), and several volumes of sermons, besides essays on questions of public interest, such as dissertations on the " Tracts for the Times," "The Popish Supremacy," "Papal Aggression," "Marriage with a deceased Wife's Sister," and "The proposed Admission of Jews to Parliament." He was also a frequent contributor to various periodicals.
