Daniel Waterland (1682-83-1740) English theologian and apologist. "His significance lies in his defense of trinitarian orthodoxy against Samuel Clarke and Daniel Whitby, and in his check upon the advance of latitudinarianism with the Church of England... He was a prolific author... In all of these there appear a learning which is deep and accurate, a style terse and vigorous, and an opposition to mysticism and philosophy which compelled him to have recourse to external evidences for his apologetics."--New Schaff-Herzog Ency. Rel. Knowl. XII:276. I offer this tract published by the Protestant Episcopal Tract Society, giving the text of the Athanasian Creed with Waterland's commentary.
