Edward Stillingfleet was a 17th-century British theologian known for his defensive views on Anglicanism. His first work, which (negatively) set the tone for his literary career, was ‘The Irenicum’, a work which advocated for compromise between the Presbyterian and Anglican Orthodox churches.

 

Stillingfleet made other controversial speeches and written attacks on the separatists including ‘The Unreasonableness of Separation’. This 1680 treatise found a way to make everyone unhappy – the separatists were further disgusted with his views, but they were even more disappointed with his desire for harsher punishments and responses. Stillingfleet was publically vocal about his concerns for fanaticism and dogmatism of the separatists, condemning any sort of tolerance toward the separatists. He even sought out the works of Erasmus to justify his anti-Quaker, anti-Separatist anger.

 

Following the unrest caused by this work, Stillingfleet was known to have engaged in even more controversy when he embarked on an attack of John Locke’s ‘Essay Concerning Human Understanding’.
