shantidaffern: John Keble has a lesser festival in the CoE today: so it feels time to trace the Wordsworthian influence in his Lectures. One of the great self-cons/joys of a PhD is that you can make most things feel relevant to your research.

shantidaffern: Keble & Wordsworth vignette: 12 June 1839, Sheldonian Theatre. Keble gives the Creweian Oration & praises Wordsworth's poetry of humanity. Wordsworth is 'enthusiastically cheered' as his honorary doctorate is granted. He gives the Newdigate Prize for poetry to 20y/o John Ruskin.

APDeBattista: John Keble was also an accomplished poet. His collection "The Christian Year" is a remarkable book which manages to be devotional without being trite. It deserves a wider reading and it is now available easily in open access.

APDeBattista: Abide with me from morn till eve, For without Thee I cannot live: Abide with me when night is nigh, For without Thee I dare not die. Thou Framer of the light and dark, Steer through the tempest Thine own ark: Amid the howling wintry sea We are in port if we have Thee John Keble

jordan_welshy: Today is John Keble day: A lesser festival in the Church of England that marks the anniversary of his Assize Sermon (also known as National Apostasy) in 1833. It is considered to be the beginning of the Oxford/ Tractarian movement. Need to get myself the rather fetching mask.

RichardJFrith: Happy John Keble day. Praying today for all who continue to look to the Oxford Movement, and for all parish clergy.

cath_cov: "We have ill-learned the lessons of our Church, if we permit our patriotism to decay, together with the protecting care of the State. 'The powers that be are ordained of God,' whether they foster the true church or no. Submission and order are still duties" John Keble OTD 1833

John Keats Poem
Sonnet Xvi. To Kosciusko
 by John Keats

And changed to harmonies, for ever stealing
Through cloudless blue, and round each silver throne.
