About the authors: - Jean Le Clerc, also Johannes Clericus (1657-1736), was a Swiss theologian and biblical scholar. He was famous for promoting exegesis, or critical interpretation of the Bible, and was a radical of his age. He parted with Calvinism over his interpretations and left Geneva for that reason. - Henry Hammond (1605-1660) was an English churchman, who supported the Royalist cause during the English Civil War.
