Bishop Donald Robinson, a major proponent of the Anglican Diocese of Sydney’s Reformed theological tradition, died Sept. 7 at age 95.
“We have lost a giant in the world of New Testament scholarship,” Archbishop Glenn Davies said.
Robinson was for 30 years a lecturer and vice principal at Sydney’s Moore Theological College before becoming area bishop in Parramatta. He served as Archbishop of Sydney and Metropolitan of New South Wales from 1982 to 1993.
In 1980 he was appointed to the inaugural Inter-Anglican Theological and Doctrinal Commission.
