William Ames

William Ames (1576-1633) was one of the most influential voices in the theological development of the Puritan and Reformed churches in England and the Netherlands. He received his A.B. degree in 1607 and was promptly invited to become a fellow of Christ's College. Because Ames refused to wear vestments and spoke out against the sign of the cross administered during baptism and other ceremonies, he was denied mastership of the college and another candidate was chosen. Ames withdrew his fellowship, and never returned again to English Academia. In 1610, he moved to Holland and worked as a minister and later as a professor. Ames voice The Marrow of Theology is Ames' most well known work. He was known and quoted in the colonies of the New World for his theology more than Calvin and Luther combined
