A former Dean of Christ Church Cathedral, Oxford—and as such also head of Christ Church, Oxford—he also served as Master of Peterhouse, Cambridge, becoming the first person in four centuries to have headed a college at both universities.
A leading historian of the
early church, Chadwick was appointed Regius Professorat both the universities of Oxford and Cambridge. He was a noted supporter of improved relations with the Roman Catholic Church, and a leading member of the Anglican Roman Catholic International Commission(ARCIC). An accomplished musician, having studied music to degree level, he took a leading part in the revision and updating of hymnals widely used within Anglicanism, chairing the board of the publisher, Hymns Ancient & Modern Ltd., for twenty years.

A highlight of his undergraduate musical career was playing a two piano arrangement of Chabrier's "España" with Boris Ord, then organist of King's College, Cambridge.

From there, he became an assistant master at Wellington College. He married Peggy in 1945.
Chadwick became a
Fellowof Queens' College, Cambridgewith his appointment as Chaplain in 1946, and in 1950 advanced to the position of Dean. His rising academic reputation was confirmed in 1953 with the publication of a project had occupied him since the days of his curacy—his new translation of Origen's " Contra Celsus", with introduction and notes. He had by now made himself an expert in PatristicGreek; only an inexactness in philologymarking his earlier abandonment of Greek for music. Also in 1953 he was appointed co-editor (with Hedley Sparks) of the "Journal of Theological Studies" and continued editing it until 1985.

ordination of women.

R. Dodds, Peter Brown, and John Matthews, Chadwick helped make Oxford a centre in the developing study of Late Antiquity. He clarified the classical philosophical roots of Christian thinkers from Justin Martyrand Clement of Alexandriato Augustine of Hippo, and set about raising academic standards within the theology department—in particular making the degree of Doctor of Divinity(DD) into a genuine research degree, as opposed to an honorary award made to senior clerics who had produced a volume of sermons. 1967 saw the publication of his most widely read work, "The Early Church", published under the Pelican imprint of Penguin Books. He was disappointed that he was allowed to include so few footnotes in the original publication, and correspondingly delighted when the publishers of a German edition requested additional notes for their translation. That same year he was appointed to a Church of England doctrine commission investigating "The place of the Articles in the Anglican tradition and the question of Subscription and Assent to them", which produced its report in July 1968 ready for that year's Lambeth Conference. The report ultimately led to changes in the doctrinal affirmations required of Church of England clergy at their ordination or on taking up new appointments.

The Church of England's Declaration of Assent|publisher=Church House publishing|year=2005|isbn=0715140744] In 1968 he was appointed a vice-president of the British Academy.
In 1969, Chadwick was appointed Dean of Christ Church, uniquely a dual role as a cathedral dean and head of a college. [LondonGazette|issue=44957|startpage=10481|date=14 October 1969|accessdate=2008-07-09] This period was not entirely happy; a scholarly ability to see all sides of a question, along with an ingrained desire not to upset his colleagues, sometimes made it hard for him to make a quick or firm decision. However, during his time as Dean the college benefited from a continued programme of renovation with internal changes that provided more student accommodation. The position gave Chadwick the chance to influence the musical direction of the cathedral. In "
The Independent" newspaper, obituary writer Andrew Louth notes that at the retirement of Sydney Watson as organist, when he and Chadwick played piano duets together Chadwick's technique was the equal of Watson's. The new organist, Simon Preston, had ambitious plans for improving musical standards, and Chadwick was pleased to be able to support these, not least by raising funds for a new organ.
Chadwick also found time to contribute to the administration of the wider university, serving on the
Hebdomadal Council, [Cite newspaper The Times |articlename=News From The Universities—Oxford|author= |section=Official Appointments and Notices|day_of_week=Monday|date=20 November 1967|page_number=10|page_numbers= |issue=57103|column=C] as a Delegate of Oxford University Press, as one of the curators of the Bodleian, and as Pro-Vice-Chancellor1974–5. It was during this period that he began to participate in the discussions of ARCIC (he was a member of the commission 1969–81 and again 1983–90); his early Evangelical sympathies having been tempered over time, helped by his friendship with Edward Yarnold, Master of Campion Hall.

He was also able to use his historical background to put forward summaries of early church positions on a variety of subjects, and he had a true desire to establish consensus on the basis of the principles revealed by this research.cite news|url=http://www.nytimes.com/2008/06/22/world/europe/22chadwick.html|title=Henry Chadwick, Scholar of Early Christianity, Dies at 87|work= The New York Times|date=2008-06-22|accessdate=2008-06-26] Although his scholarly output suffered from the pressures on his time, he was editor of "Oxford Early Christian Texts" (from 1970), and was able to work on two major monographs, " Priscillian of Avila: the occult and the charismatic in the early Church" (published 1976) and " Boethius: the consolations of music, logic, theology and philosophy" (published 1981). The second of these in particular allowing him to draw on the full range of his interests.
Return to Cambridge
In 1979, Chadwick resigned the deanship, [LondonGazette|issue=47969|startpage=12417|date=4 October 1979|accessdate=2008-07-09] returning to Cambridge to take up the Regius Chair of Divinity. [Cite newspaper The Times |articlename=University news—Cambridge|author=|section= Official Appointments and Notices|day_of_week=Wednesday|date=24 May 1978 |page_number=19|page_numbers= |issue=60309|column=D] Additionally, he became a Syndic of
Cambridge University Press, a Fellow of Magdalene, and was installed as an honorary canon of Ely Cathedral. He gained a reputation as a popular lecturer in Cambridge, and between 1982 and 1983 gave the Sarum Lecturesin Oxford, for which his subject was Augustine of Hippo. Edited, these lectures became the basis for his 1986 book, "Augustine". He retired from the professorship in 1983 and settled in Oxford.
After four years in retirement, he received an unexpected invitation to become Master of Peterhouse in 1987, thus becoming the first person in over four centuries to lead a college at both Oxford and Cambridge. Chadwick's second appointment as head of a college proved a happier experience than his first. The college had been experiencing some problems following the admission of the first female students, to which some fellows were implacably opposed, making their displeasure known at
High Table. Chadwick insisted on civility, which coupled with the retirement of some of the fellows, ensured an improvement in the atmosphere within the college. This continued after his second retirement (again to Oxford) in 1993. He was appointed Knight Commander of the Order of the British Empirein the 1989 Queen's Birthday Honours. [LondonGazette|issue=51772|supp=yes|startpage=7|date=16 June 1989|accessdate=2008-07-09] In 1991 he published a new translation of Augustine's "Confessions", with extensive notes revealing Augustine's debt to Plotinus.
Chadwick also edited "Oxford Early Christian Studies" (from 1990), and with his brother, Owen, "The Oxford History of the Christian Church". His own volume of this series, entitled "The Church in Ancient Society: from Galilee to Gregory the Great", appeared in 2001. His final work was to have been on
Photios I of Constantinople, research for which covered many of his interests, particularly classical learning and Christianity, and ecumenism. Some of his material on the topic was published in "East and West: the making of a rift in the Church" (2003) (also part of the Oxford History series). He died in Oxford on 17 June 2008.
Reputation and recognition
Writing in an obituary for "
The Guardian", the Archbishop of Canterbury, Rowan Williamswrote, "'The Anglican church,' it was said, 'may not have a Pope, but it does have Henry Chadwick.'" and further described him as an "aristocrat among Anglican scholars". Other obituaries and appreciations describe how he was generous with his time and knowledge, and always ready to point students in the right direction. "The Independent" credits his capacious memory and a personal library of around 20,000 books as the foundation of his broad scholarship. [cite news|last=Williams|first=Adrian|url=http://www.timesonline.co.uk/tol/comment/obituaries/article4174494.ece|title=Lives Remembered: Henry Chadwick, Nat Temple, Christopher Morgan|work= The Times|date=2008-06-20|accessdate=2008-06-26] According to " The Times", when reviewing others' writing he was usually generous, though capable of a courteous demolition job when well-deserved.
A capable preacher, though doubtful of his ability when preaching to a non-academic congregation, Chadwick was well-regarded as a lecturer and companion at High Table. However, a natural shyness could give him a rather remote air. On an American lecture tour, he noticed three young women who came to every lecture, but took no notes. At the end of lectures he asked the women how they had enjoyed them, to be told that they had no real interest in the subject itself, but they loved to hear him speak. The character of the college provost in the "
A Staircase in Surrey" novels of Christ Church colleague J. I. M. Stewartwas based on that of Chadwick.
Chadwick held honorary degrees from the universities of Glasgow, Uppsala, Yale, Leeds, Manchester, Surrey, Chicago, Harvard, Jena and the
Augustinian University of Rome.

Gillian Evans, 1988), the other for his ecumenical work ("The Making of Orthodoxy", ed. Rowan Williams, 1989). In addition to his work on ARCIC he was involved in similar conversations with the Eastern Orthodox Churches.

Chadwick's love of music led him to serve for twenty years as chairman of the council of
Hymns Ancient & Modern Ltd. During this time the company expanded its scope. From producing the hymnbooks Hymns Ancient and Modern(A&M), and The English Hymnal, it also took ownership of Canterbury Press, SCM Press, and the " Church Times", leading to jokes that Chadwick was an ecclesiastical Rupert Murdoch. He was heavily involved in the editorial process leading to the supplements to A&M, "100 Hymns for Today", "More Hymns for Today", "Worship Songs Ancient and Modern", and "Hymns Ancient and Modern New Standard", which combined the best of the original book with that from the supplements into a single volume, and also the most recent revision, "Common Praise". He had particularly argued for the inclusion of the Spiritual, " Steal Away", and this was amongst the music used at his funeral.
Chadwick published over 125 books, monographs, articles etc. Mentioned in obituaries as being particularly notable are:
*"Origen: Contra Celsum" (1953)
*"Early Christian Thought and The Classical Tradition: Studies in Justin, Clement, and Origen" (Oxford, 1966)
*"Priscillian of Avila: The Occult and the Charismatic in the Early Church" (1976)
