Owen vs. Baxter. Whose kung-fu is better?

November 6, 2008

Tim Cooper, author of Fear and Polemic in Seventeenth-Century England: Richard Baxter and Antinomianism (Ashgate, 2001) will be in London later this month and is leading a seminar at the Institute of Historical Research entitled ‘Why Did Richard Baxter And John Owen Diverge? The Impact of the First Civil War’ on the 25th November. Details here . I gather that he will be looking at how Owen’s and Baxter’s very different experiences of the Civil War coloured their outlook on a number of issues. I’m pretty sure there will be no talk of kung-fu.
