FIELD, FREDERICK: Church of England; b. in London July 20, 1801; d. at Norwich Apr. 19, 1885. He studied at Trinity College, Cambridge (B.A., 1823), and from 1824 to 1843 was fellow of his college. He was ordained priest in 1828, and was rector of Reepham, Norfolk, 1842-63, resigning that he might be able to devote himself entirely to his edition of the fragments of Origen's Hexapla, a work the erudition of which is universally recognized. He was elected an honorary fellow of Trinity College in 1875 and was a member of the British Old Testament Revision Company. In theology he avoided both the Evangelical and ritualistic extremes. He edited the Greek text of Chrysostom's homilies on Matthew (3 vols., Cambridge, 1839) and on all the Pauline Epistles (7 vols., Oxford, 1849-62); Isaac Barrow's Treatise on the Pope's Supremacy (London, 1851); J. E. Grabe's text of the Septuagint (Oxford, 1859); and Origenis Hexaplorum quæ supersunt (2 vols., 1867-74); and wrote Otium Norvicense (3 parts, 1864-86; the third part, Notes on select Passages of the Greek Testament, reprinted with additions by the author and edited by A. M. Knight, 1897). He also collaborated on Payne Smith's Thesaurus Syriacus.
