Subject: Historian Christopher Hill Dies at 91
Comment:        SHK 14.0388 Historian Christopher Hill Dies at 91

He was elusive, subtle, devious; he could not be pinned down by any easy
formula - Puritan, humanist, radical - or at least no one has yet found
the formula. Like Oliver Cromwell, he manifestly held some strong
convictions very pertinaciously; but around them there was a shifting
penumbra of - what? A desire to combine intense ideals with practical
realism? A sensitivity to environment? A divided personality? He was
infinitely various. And yet he sang unchanged though fallen on evil
days, on evil days though fallen on evil tongues.
