Quick Reference

John Rogers was born in Eynsham, Oxfordshire and died in London. He was educated at New College School and Corpus Christi College, Oxford (BA, 1697; MA, 1700; BD, 1710). A controversialist clergyman, he became Sub-Dean of Wells and, from 1726, Chaplain in Ordinary to the Prince of Wales. His principal works discuss the relationship between the temporal and spiritual powers of the Church, and strongly defend the former. Reflections on the Conduct of the Modern Deists (1727) is a response to Anthony Collins.
