Excerpt from The Princeton Review, Vol. 30: October, 1858

There is another topic which is more or less discussed in this pamphlet, owing to the peculiar relation which Yale College sustains to it. Says Professor Fisher: In recounting its religious history, it is proper to notice what the College has done for theological science. The fathers of the New England theology - Edwards, Bellamy, Hopkins, West, Smalley, Em mons, and Dwight - went forth from Yale. The younger Jonathan Edwards is the only one of the leading expounders of the New Divinity who was educated elsewhere. He was a graduate of Nassau Hall. The first and most eminent of these, after taking his degree, remained here for several years as resident graduate, and afterwards as tutor. Here, in his own judgment, his religious life began; here his principles were formed, and he received the discipline which prepared him to take the highest rank in the field of intellectual science. Bellamy, who was converted soon after leaving college, and Hopkins, were pupils of Edwards. From Hopkins, West derived his theology; Smalley studied with Bellamy, and Emmons with Smalley. These men, and especially the fore most one among them, who gave impulse to all the rest, have strongly in?uenced the thinking of the age. Whatever is distinctive of American theology as contrasted with the general theology of the church, may be traced to them. The leaders of the various parties in theology among us, who have contended in recent times, were most of them instructed by Dr. Dwight, and profess to deduce their views from his teach ing.* Yale College has borne a theological stamp from the outset. Pp. 36, 37.
