This week we have two big collections, one about to leave CP and the other about to ship. I was reading Westcott's 'St. Paul and Justification'. And in one paragraph, he managed to 'hit' both Lightfoot and Ramsay, while also touching on Cambridge. Westcott really has a sense of humor:

'It is possible, of course, that at some later date (before ‘Galatians’ was written) the Apostle may have touched the fringe of Bishop Lightfoot’s ‘Galatia,’ with its Celtic population. But Professor Ramsay would appear to have established his main position. The geographical argument appears to me wholly conclusive. The interpretation of Acts 16:6 would (no doubt) be open to question, by itself. But, that Ramsay is wholly right in his grip of St Paul’s ‘objective,’ and in his strong contention that ‘Celtic Galatia’ lay entirely off the track of his evangelistic ambitions, I cannot for a moment doubt. Perhaps it may be of interest to some among Cambridge students, if I say that the Bishop’s lifelong friend told me, shortly before he died, that he was himself a convert to the ‘South Galatian’ theory.'
