Description

Excerpt from An Unpublished Essay of Edwards on the Trinity: With Remarks on Edwards and His Theology A notable and almost epoch-making contribution on the writings and opinions of Edwards concerning the Trinity appeared in 1881, in two Articles - forming a connected whole - in the Bibliotheca Sacra, from the pen of Professor Edwards A. Park. In the first Article are copious extracts from the Monthly Review (april 1751) in which were recorded passages from The Philo sophical Principles of Natural and Revealed Religion, by the Chevalier Ramsay - a work published shortly before. Ramsay was a Scotchman by birth, with a strong taste and corresponding talent for metaphysical speculation. He espoused successive phases of religious thought and belief, passing from orthodox Protestantism through Deism and, later, Scepticism, into the Roman Catholic Church. He resided for a considerable time in France, and was for a part of this period in close intercourse with Fenelon and under his influence. At the widest remove from many of Ramsay's religious tenets, Edwards approved, as concurrent with his own, the views which Ramsay set forth, in his book, of the infinitude of God, of His activity as eternal and not originating in anything external but from within of the analogy, up to a limit in measure, of that activity, in the human mind; of the three distinctions in the Deity.
