Meet the Author

Thomas Blake (1597-1657), a reformed puritan, was a native of Staffordshire. As he entered Christ Church College, Oxford, in 1616 in his nineteenth year, he must have been born about 1597. He proceeded to earn a B.A. and an M. A., and having obtained orders, Mr. Wood tells us, he had “some petite employment in the church bestowed on him.” “At length,” continues the historian, “when the Presbyterians began to be dominant, he adhered to that party,” and “subscribed to the lawfulness of the covenant (The Solemn League and Covenant) in 1648 among the ministers of Shropshire, and soon after, showing himself a zealous brother while he was pastor of St. Alkmond’s in Shrewsbury, he received a call to Tamworth in Staffordshire and Warwickshire, where also being a constant preacher up of the cause, he was thought fit by Oliver and his council to be nominated one of the assistants to the commissioners of Staffordshire for the ejecting of such whom they called ignorant and scandalous ministers and schoolmasters.”

Blake published a large number of books on puritan theology, but his attacks on Richard Baxter damaged his reputation with many nonconformists. His arguments indicate a narrow, if subtle, intellect.
