Hopkins Samuel

Hopkins, Samuel (1721-1803), American theologian, was born at Waterbury, Connecticut, and educated at Yale College. From 1743 to 1769 he was pastor of Housatonnuc in Massachusetts. The views expressed in his System of Doctrines (1793) differ in some respects from the ordinary Calvinistic theology, and have given rise to the growth of a separate school, who do not, however, form a distinct sect. He also wrote a life of Jonathan Edwards.
