Show Summary Details


The development of Calvinism to c.1860 is explored, from its roots in the work of John Calvin to early nineteenth‐century proponents. Key figures in the development of evangelical Calvinism were Jonathan Edwards and Andrew Fuller. High Calvinism in the native English tradition owed much to the work of John Gill, William Huntington, and Robert Hawker. The influence of these traditions on social concern is explored.
