Quick Reference

A place in the hills of Judah. When David fled from Saul he hid in a cave nearby and there gathered a supportive force of malcontents (1 Sam. 22: 1–2). Hence the term Adullamites applied by John Bright to MPs who refused to support Gladstone's Reform Bill in 1866 and deserted the Liberal Party.
