SUBSTANCE OF CERTAIN CLAUSES IN THE WILL OF
THE REV. JOHN HULSE, M.A.
[Dated July 21, 1777.]
He founds a Lectureship in the University of Cambridge.
The Lecturer to be a · Clergyman in the University of Cambridge, of the degree of Master of Arts, and under the age of forty years. He is to be elected annually 'on Christmas-day, or within seven days after, by the Vice-Chancellor for the time being, and by the Master of Trinity College, and the Master of St John's College, or any two of them.' In case the Master of Trinity, or the Master of St John's, be the Vice-Chancellor, the Greek Professor is to be the third Trustee.
The Duty of the said Lecturer is, by the Will, “to preach twenty Sermons in the whole year,' at · Saint Mary's Great Church in Cambridge;' but the number having been found inconvenient, application was made to the Court of Chancery for leave to reduce it, and eight Sermons only are now required. These are to be printed at the Preacher's expence, within twelve months after the delivery of the last Sermon.
The subject of the Lectures is to be the Evidence for Revealed Religion; the Truth and Excellence of Christianity; Prophecies and Miracles; direct or collateral Proofs of the Christian Religion, especially the collateral arguments; the more difficult texts, or obscure parts of the Holy Scriptures;' or any one, or more of these topics, at the discretion of the Preacher.
