About the Cyclopedia

Cambridge Platonists.

Latitudinarian* school founded by Benjamin Whichcote, Ralph Cudworth,* John Smith, and Henry More in the 17th c. tried to reconcile reason and religion; believed that good and evil exist apart from God; views led to mysticism and transcendentalism; held data of revelation could be judged by reason because God dwells in the mind.
