Resource Toolbox

a learned English divine, was a native of Cambridge, and educated at Christ's College. On the Restoration, Jeremy Taylor, foreseeing the vacancy in the deanery of Connor, in Ireland, sent to Cambridge to secure a man suitable for that position. Dr. Rust was chosen, and he landed at Dublin about August, 1661. He was preferred to the deanery as soon as it was void, and in 1662 to the rectory of the island of Magee. The bishop dying (Aug. 13, 1667), the bishopric was divided, and Dr. Rust became bishop of Dromore, which position he held until his death, in December, 1670. He wrote, A Letter of Resolution concerning Origen, etc. (Lond. 1661, 4to): Discourse of Truth, besides several Sermons.
