Having, in my late defence of the doctrine of the gospel from the
corruptions of the Socinians, been occasioned to vindicate the
testimonies given in the Scripture to the deity of Christ from their
exceptions, and finding that Hugo Grotius, in his Annotations, had (for
the most part) done the same things with them as to that particular,
and some other important articles of the Christian faith, that book of
his being more frequent in the hands of students than those of the
Socinians, I thought it incumbent on me to do the same work in

About the Author

Owen, in the preface to his treatise on the "Perseverance of the
Saints," had alluded to Dr Hammond as indebted to Grotius "for more
than one rare notion" in his expositions of Scripture. An elaborate
reply to the whole argument of Dr Owen against the Ignatian Epistles,
contained in the same preface, appeared in 1655 from the pen of
Hammond, and under the title, "An Answer to the Animadversions on the
Dissertations concerning the Epistles of Ignatius." In the course of
it, a digression was introduced vindicating Grotius from charges which
Owen certainly had not mooted, but in which, to a certain extent, he
could not refrain from concurring.
