Stanley (1815-1881), often called "Dean Stanley" due to his Dean of Westminster position, was a clergyman and church historian. He was appointed regius professor of ecclesiastical history at Oxford in 1856, a position he held until 1863. It was there he began his History of the Jewish Church, publishing the first volume in 1863 and the second in 1865. Stanley became Dean of Westminster in 1863, publishing Memorials of Westminster Abbey in 1865, which still serves today as one of the most comprehensive books about Westminster's history.
