Christian Cyclopedia

About the Cyclopedia

Coleridge, Samuel Taylor

(1772–1834). Eng. poet, critic, philos., and dramatist. Fond of unusual romantic themes. Deeply impressed by Luther's writings. Borrowed without leave a copy of H. Bell's* version of Luther's Table Talk from Charles Lamb and made notes in its margins; this copy, in the Brit. Museum, is regarded by some as the most precious of all vols. of Luther in English. Viewed Luther as “the only fit commentator for St. Paul … not by any means such a gentleman as the apostle, but almost as great a genius.” Works include Aids to Reflection, a defense of Trinitarian Christianity.

G. Rupp, The Righteousness of God (New York, 1953), pp. 49–50.
