Charles Cranfield: In Memoriam


Durham Abbey House

The Reverend Professor Charles E. B. Cranfield, who died on 27th February, 2015, six months short of what would have been his hundredth birthday, was one of the leading British New Testament scholars of the second half of the twentieth century.  He taught in Durham for thirty years, as Lecturer (1950-62), Senior Lecturer (1962-66), Reader (1966-78) and finally in a ‘personal chair’ (1978-80).  During the same period he was colleague with Professor C. K. Barrett, two years younger, and together they made Durham pre-eminent in the world of New Testament scholarship.
