Rev. Nathaniel Ingelo

Nathaniel Ingelo, an acquaintance and admirer of Henry More the Platonist, took his M.A. from the University of Edinburgh before entering Queen's College Cambridge (M.A. 1644, Fellow 1644-46, D.D. 1658). He was afterwards a Fellow of Eton College (1650-85) and Rector of Piddlehinton, Dorset (1671-77). Andrew Marvell addressed a Latin poem to Ingelo, whose religious romance Bentivolio and Urania went through five editions.
