Jones (of Nayland), Pref. xix-xxiii, 20-23, &c.  His own views were visionary and extreme.  Natural religion, for example, he called ‘the religion of Satan and of Antichrist’ (id. xix).  But he had many admirers, including many young men of promise at Oxford (id. 81).  They were attracted by the earnestness of his opposition to some theological tendencies of the age.  It was to this reactionary feeling that his repute was chiefly owing.  ’Of Mr. Hutchinson we hear but little; his name was the match that gave fire to the train’ (id. 92).]
