Name: <Andrew Ollerton> 

PhD: <Historical Theology>

Thesis Title: <The Crisis of Calvinism in Cromwellian England>


Thesis Description:

<My research considers the reasons for the rise of anti-Calvinist soteriology  during the years of Puritan hegemony (1650s). On their own watch, the Puritan divines found some of their own articulating Arminian ideas (John Goodwin), as well as new publications from the old enemy of episcopalian divines (Thomas Pierce). To add further confusion, soteriologies emerged from Baptist, Quaker, Socinian and other radicals that made Reformed divines fear the worst. The research includes a significant overview chapter charting the rise of Arminianism in the 1650s followed by several theological chapters covering the themes of eternal decrees, atonement and saving grace.   >
