Show Summary Details


This chapter explores the ideas and writings of theologian Reginald John Campbell. Campbell put together his own amalgam of theological ideas, in which Idealism was one of the most powerful components. He was influenced by the ideas of Caird, Gore, and the French Protestant Auguste Sabatier. The British Idealists' socio-political concern, which Campbell encountered in a junior common room version in the Christian Social Union at Oxford, he began to translate into a more serious and practical involvement with left-wing politics.

Keywords: Reginald John Campbell; theologian; Christian Social Union; Auguste Sabatier
