William Warburton was born in Newark and apprenticed with a lawyer; he changed his mind, however, and became an ordained deacon. He held numerous ecclesiastical offices throughout England, culminating in his appointment as bishop of Gloucester in 1759. Warburton was also a writer on both religious and secular topics, including the controversial but widely admired Divine Legation of Moses demonstrated on the Principles of a Religious Deist. Warburton was an often controversial figure, engaging in a very public feud with Lewis Theobald about his contributions to Theobald's work on Shakespeare, and maintaining a dismissive attitude toward those who disagreed with him, but he was also a loyal friend to some of the key figures of his day.
