Hales, John 1584-1656

John Hales was an English theologian, sometime Greek Professor of the University of Oxford, long Fellow of Eaton college, and at last also Prebendary of Windsor. He was present at the Synod of Dort, not as a delegate but as chaplain to the English ambassador. He and some other English theologians were shocked by the treatment of the Arminians, and impressed by the Arminians' defence of their positions, "bade John Calvin goodnight", retaining serious second thoughts about many distinctive Calvinish positions, but according to Tulloch "did not say good-morning to Arminius." He was a tolerant and broad-minded Anglican, of great reputation in his own day for his learning; his sermons were collected after his death as Golden Remains.
