Herbert Marsh, an English author, born in London in 1757, died in Peterborough in 1839. He was educated at St. John's college, Cambridge. In 1783 he went to Germany, and resided in Gottingen, where he published in German a series of pamphlets in defence of the war policy of Great Britain, for which Mr. Pitt rewarded him with a pension. On the French invasion of Germany he returned to England, and in 1807 was appointed Lady Margaret's professor of divinity at Cambridge, and substituted English for Latin in the delivery of his lectures. In 1816 he was made bishop of Llandaff, and three years subsequently was translated to Peterborough. He was a distinguished opponent of both Calvinists and Roman Catholics. His principal works are: a translation of Michaelis's " Introduction to the New Testament" (London, 1792-1801); "The Authenticity of the Five Books of Moses considered" (4to, Cambridge, 1792); "The National Religion the Foundation of National Education" (1811); "Lectures on the Criticism and Interpretation of the Bible" (1838); and " Lectures on the Authenticity and Credibility of the New Testament, and on the Authority of the Old Testament" (new ed., 1840).
