Show Summary Details


This chapter discusses the significance, the life, and the contributions of John Tillotson. Dr John Tillotson represents the policy of moderation within post-Restoration Anglicanism. He is probably the most famous example of that religious outlook known as latitudinarianism. The vast majority of Tillotson's published works are sermons. His sermons on the atonement and justification do not begin to compare with the lengthy treatises of Owen and Baxter, but his style reveals a remarkable gift for brevity and lucidity.

Keywords: John Tillotson; Anglicanism; latitudinarianism; Christianity; sermons; atonement; justification
