Biography

John Tillotson (born in Sowerby, Yorkshire), was an English archbishop and the famous preacher.

Tillotson grew up in a Puritan home, but it was during his studies at Cambridge under the influence of the Cambridge Platonists revisionists Ralph Cudworth and Henry More, who gave him a new religious problem, aligning his interest in the confrontation between Christianity and rationalistic atheism as the crucial issue. The reading of Chillingworths religion of protestants affected him even more in latitudinarisk direction.

His sermons were translated into both French and German. Voltaire could not refuse them his admiration. In Germany, formed the Johann Lorenz von Mosheim after Tillotson, and the contemporary, who highly valued Mosheim, could not give him more honorable name than the German Tillotson.
