Abstract:

"John Locke, who is now best known as a philosopher, though, in his own time, he was almost equally celebrated as a theologian, financier, and statesman, was born at Wrington, a village in the North of Somersetshire, not far from Bristol, Aug. 29, 1632. During these years of public employment, Locke's pen was by no means idle. In 1695 had appeared his 'Reasonableness of Christianity,' a work in which, while assuming the infallibility of the Scriptures and the supernatural character of Christ's mission, he attempts to limit as far as possible. The views of religion and religious controversy adopted in this book have a general affinity with those of the Arminian or Remonstrant divines, among whom Locke had mixed in Holland. But, in some particulars, they approach the doctrines of Faustus Socinus, and hence a cry of Socinianism was not unnaturally raised against the author, who, though the work was published anonymously, was soon known to be Locke."
