Anglican theologian. He took part in the theological controversies of his time, especially those on the Divinity of Christ and the Trinity, on Deism, and on the Eucharist. The Eucharist was, he held, a commemorative and representative service, which possessed a sacrificial aspect from the remembrance of Christ's death, and the sacramental Presence was to be understood as the virtue and grace of the Lord's Body and Blood communicated to the worthy receiver. This intermediate position was long widely accepted in the C of E.
