About John L. Dagg

John Leadly Dagg (1794–1884) was known as the first Baptist systematic theologian. He was born in Middleburg, Virginia, in 1794. From 1825 to 1834, he served as the minister of a prominent Philadelphia church. After losing his voice, he retired from the pulpit and began teaching at Haddington Literary and Theological Institute. He was professor and president of Mercer University, Georgia, from 1844 to 1856. After his retirement in 1856, he penned the four works that sealed his reputation as a theologian and ethicist.
