Anti-Arminians: The Anglican Reformed Tradition from Charles by Stephen Hampton

By Stephen Hampton

This e-book is a examine of the Anglican Reformed culture (often inaccurately defined as Calvinist) after the recovery. Hampton units out to revise our photo of the theological global of the later Stuart interval. Arguing that the significance of the Reformed theological culture has often been underestimated, his examine issues to a community of conforming reformed theologians which incorporated a number of the such a lot well-known churchmen of the age. Focusing rather on what those churchmen contributed in 3 hotly disputed parts of doctrine (justification, the Trinity and the divine attributes), he argues that the main major debates in speculative theology after 1662 have been the results of the Anglican Reformed resistance to the transforming into impact of continental Arminianism. Hampton demonstrates the power and suppleness of the Reformed reaction to the constructing Arminian university, and indicates that the Reformed culture remained a conceivable theological choice for Anglicans good into the eighteenth century. This examine consequently offers an important bridge linking the Reformed writes of the Elizabethan and early Stuart sessions to the Reformed Evangelicals of the eighteenth century. It additionally indicates that, all through its formative interval, Anglicanism used to be now not a monolithic culture, yet relatively a contested flooring among the competing claims of these adhering to the Church of England's Reformed doctrinal historical past and the insights of these who, to various levels, have been ready to discover new theological avenues.

Grieg, ‘Heresy Hunt: Gilbert Burnet and the Convocation Controversy of 1701’, HJ, 37 (1994), p584. 150 If there was any doubt about what the Articles meant, then recourse could always be had to various established authorities, including, in particular, the (unambiguously Reformed) Book of Homilies.

Allison tells a story in which the originally Reformed teaching of the English Church was gradually eclipsed, as the century wore on, by a novel understanding of justiWcation in which good works played an unhealthily signiWcant part.

Bishops Ward, Hopkins, and Hacket, for example, were famously active within their cathedrals. 101 Hopkins was yet another Reformed supporter of organ music, installing an instrument in his cathedral at Derry shortly after he arrived, as well as donating to the cathedral a handsome set of communion plate. Hacket, for his part, not only dedicated £3,500 of his own money to the restoration work at LichWeld, but raised a further £15,000 for the organ, the choir stalls and the altar ornaments—just the sort of High Church stage props which would have found scant appreciation amongst the Reformed divines of an earlier generation.
