Dixie Professor of Ecclesiastical History

The Dixie Professorship of Ecclesiastical History is one of the senior professorships in history at the University of Cambridge.

Lord Mayor of London in the 16th century, Sir Wolstan Dixie, left funds to found both scholarships and fellowships at Emmanuel College, Cambridge. In 1878 the fellowships were abolished and replaced by the professorship that still bears his name.
