Overview

Herbert Thorndike was a reputable seventeenth-century scholar who passionately engaged with the controversial theological issues of his time. Based on the first six General Councils of the Church, his earliest published works defended episcopacy against Presbyterianism, engaged the rights of the church, and built a case for the return to Christian unity. In the wake of the Restoration of the English monarchy, he helped revise the Book of Common Prayer.

After his death, Thorndike’s writings were forgotten until the nineteenth century, when the Tractarian movement took up his torch and defended both the early church’s authority and the Catholic influence on the Church of England. At the heart of Thorndike’s writing was his desire for the doctrinal integrity of the Church of England, and through that he advocated for interpreting Scripture through the customs of the early church, prayer for the dead, the discipline of penance, and the presence of Christ in the Eucharist.

About Herbert Thorndike

Herbert Thorndike (1598–1672) was an English writer, clergyman, theologian, and Canon of Westminster Abbey. He received his education at Trinity College, Cambridge, where he was eventually elected major fellow, lecturer in Hebrew, and senior bursar. During his lifetime, Thorndike’s works were considered unusual and were often challenged by scholars, but in the nineteenth century his works had a significant influence on the Oxford Movement.
