William Ewart Gladstone, four times Prime Minister of the United Kingdom under Queen Victoria, was not only the most celebrated British statesman of his day but also a respected theologian and a dedicated scholar of the ancient Greek poet Homer. By examining the development of his ideas, this book reveals that his political thought as leader of the Liberal party intertwined with his religion and classical scholarship.
