Chapter Fourteen surveys the diverse theological landscape of the New England in the period after the American Revolution. Special attention is paid to the developing theologies of Harvard, Yale and Andover. Calvinism was fracturing during this time, and Hodge while traveling to Boston with his friend Benjamin Wisner met many of the important theologians involved in debates surrounding these breaks. He was particularly impressed by Moses Stuart of Andover.
