Excerpt from Lectures on Church Government: Containing Objections to the Episcopal Scheme; Delivered in the Theological Seminary, Andover, August, 1843
The Founders of this Seminary, and the subsequent Founders of Professorships in the Seminary, were descendants of the Puritans, and were all Congregationalists. But they had no sectarian zeal, and no bigotry. On the contrary, they were men of uncommon enlargement of mind, and true liberality of feeling. Accordingly they directed, that the Seminary should be open to all Protestants, who should possess the requisite literary and moral qualifications. It has been open, and equally open to all such, and has granted not only its general privileges, but the benefits of its charity-funds, to young men of eight different denominations of evangelical Christians. And as to the Professors, it was only required that they should be Congregationalists, or Presbyterians. Of the twelve men who have been officers in this Institution, two have been Presbyterians, and ten Congregationalists. Of these ten, five, perhaps, have been Congregationalists of what I may call the Massachusetts order, and five of the Connecticut order, that is, favorable to Consociations. In the choice of Professors, neither Founders, nor Trustees, nor Visitors have ever made any distinction between Congregationalists and Presbyterians.
