Joseph Harvey (1787-1873) Congregational minister. In this pamphlet Harvey responds to either real or literary questions of a friend concerning the theological opinions of Nathaniel W. Taylor. Harvey stated that "Dr. Taylor's creed exhibits some of the peculiarities of Pelagianism: (e.g.) Peleagius denied original sin, or native depravity. So does Taylor."--p.25. Harvey also argues that the Theological Seminary had known years of harmony and revivals of religion. However, "this harmony and prosperity continued to increase until Dr. Taylor came into the field. And since that time the seeds of alienation and division have been industriously sown, and have produced a rapid growth and an early harvest."--p.27.
