Connop Thirlwall

Thirlwall, Connop (kŏnˈəp thûrlˈwôl) [key], 1797–1875, English historian. He was bishop of St. David's, Wales, from 1840. His chief work is his History of Greece (8 vol., 1835–44); it was the first truly scholarly survey of Greece in any language. As a historian, Thirlwall was fair and judicious, his scholarship impeccable, and his knowledge of sources unexcelled.
