MAURICE, Fredrick Denison
(1805-1872)
   English theologian and one of the founders of CHRISTIAN SOCIALISM. The son of a Unitarian Minister, he gradually accepted ANGLICANISM and was ordained in 1834. Deeply moved by the social and political ethos of his age, he sought to apply CHRISTIAN principles to social life. His book The Kingdom of Christ
   or Hints to a Quaker Concerning the Principle, Constitution and Ordinances of the Catholic Church (1838), was one of the most important theological works of the nineteenth century. It influenced many very different people including Abraham KUYPER and Henry CALLAWAY.
