An annual prize of Twenty Guineas (secured upon an estate at Horspath, in the county of Oxford) was founded during the last year by Dr. Ellerton, Fellow of Magdalen College, for the encouragement of theological learning, for the best English Essay on some doctrine or duty of the Christian Religion, or on some of the points on which we differ from the Romish Church, or on any other subject of theology which shall be deemed meet and useful.
All Members of the University, who have passed their examination for their first degree of A, B. or B. C. L. and who have commenced their sixteenth Term from their Matriculation inclusively, for the space of eight weeks previous to the day appointed for sending in the Essays, and not exceeded their twenty-eighth Term from their Matriculation inclusively, on the day on which the subject of the Essay shall be proposed in each year, are entitled to write for this Prize.
The President of Magdalen College for the time being, and the Regius Professor of Divinity for the time being, and the Lady Margaret's Professor of Divinity for the time being, are the three Judges, who are every year to select the subject of the Essay, and award the Prize.
If any of the three Judges shall be prevented by sickness or unavoidable absence from the University, from assisting in adjudging the Prize, or selecting the subject of the Essay, such Judge shall appoint, with the consent of the Vice-Chancellor and Proctors, and of the other two Judges, a Member of the University, of the degree of B. D. or D.D. to act for him in this behalf, provided that the three Judges who award the Prize be in all cases, if practicable, Members of three different Colleges or Halls.
If at any time hereafter the President of Magdalen College shall be a Layman, or happen to be either Regius, or the Lady Margaret's Professor of Divinity, then, and in that case only, the Master of University College shall act as Judge, instead of such President, to all intents and purposes whatsoever.
Any difference of opinion among the Judges to be decided by a majority.
The subject of the Essay to be proposed in Michaelmas Term the first year, and in Act Term before the Commemoration in all future years; the Essays to be sent in on or before Wednesday Easter week next ensuing.
If in any year none of the Essays sent in be deemed worthy of a Prize, in that case the proceeds are to be reserved for rewarding, at the discretion of the Judges, the writers of the second best Essay in any two future years, by a donation of Ten Guineas to each.
The Essay to which the Prize may be adjudged is not to be published, except in cases where the Judges shall unanimously approve of the public cation.
The writer of a second best Essay, rewarded with a donation, is subject to a similar restriction as to the publication of his Essay.
The Essay to which the Prize shall have been adjudged, is to be read before the University, in the Divinity School, on some day and hour to be fixed by the Vice-Chancellor in the week next before the Commemoration of the Benefactors of the University in each year.
