Development of the theology of William Milligan (1821-1893)
To follow the development of the theology of William Milligan (1821-1893) is to gain an insight into the Scottish theological world of the nineteenth century and to discern how one man succeeded in making manifest the true centre of theology, its proper scope, and its catholic imperatives. In the first chapter attention is given to the faculty and curriculum of United College and St. Mary's Divinity Hall at St. Andrews University. The second chapter consists of a presentation and analysis of William Milligan's Divinity Hall essays. He is seen as a perceptive student who had learned his lessons well, but not without the exercise of his own judgment. Withal Milligan was at that time a convinced devotee of the Common Sense philosophy and its "intuitive" principle of causality.
