Comments

An important biography of the 17th century free-thinking English clergyman, William Chillingworth (1602-1644), who made significant contributions toward the advancement of religious tolerance in England. The biographer, Pierre Des Maizeaux (1673-1745), a journalist who came to England from his native France, became well known among the English intelligentsia of the early 18th century, including Locke, Hume, Bayle, Anthony Collins and Addison. See the DNB online for both Chillingworth and Des Maizeaux. Armorial bookplate of Clement Cotterell on the verso of the title-page.
