Julian Tenison Woods: Man of Words Father Julian Tenison Woods (1832-1889) was a Man of Words. His passion for the mission of God and for all things scientific, together with his thorough research, gave energy to his listeners and credence to his readers. For the 130th anniversary of Father Julian's death in 2019, a series of articles with letters titled 'Fr Julian: Man of Words' were published. Although over 130 years after his death, we cannot have the privilege of hearing Father Julian speak, the articles have provided an opportunity to read his words. We hope you enjoy exploring through words.
