The details (from wikipedia)


Norman Powell Williams (1883–1943), known as N. P. Williams, was an English Anglo-Catholic theologian and priest. Educated at Durham School and at Christ Church, Oxford, he enjoyed a succession of appointments at that university: Fellow of Magdalen (1906), Chaplain of Exeter (1909), Lady Margaret Professor of Divinity and Canon of Christ Church (1927). In 1924 he was Bampton lecturer.

His 1924 Bampton Lectures were published in 1929 under the title The Ideas of the Fall and of Original Sin, which continues to be an influential source for students of original sin to this day.
