Liddon, Henry Parry, 1829–90, English clergyman, a noted preacher and lecturer. As canon of St. Paul's Cathedral (1870–90) and Dean Ireland professor of exegesis at Oxford (1870–82), he exercised great influence, which he used chiefly for advancing the High Church movement in the Church of England. The most important of his popular sermons were the Bampton Lectures of 1866. Published as The Divinity of Our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ, they have passed through many editions. His life of E. B. Pusey was completed and published after his death.
