author. In his Moses's Principia (1724) Hutchinson expounded a system of biblical philosophy, maintaining that Hebrew was the primitive language of humanity which, if rightly interpreted, gave the key to all knowledge. Its theories were developed by a circle of predominantly High Church Anglicans called the ‘Hutchinsonians’. In their sacramental and mystical interpretation of orthodox Christianity, they are often seen as precursors of the Oxford Movement.
