Though not closely connected with the work of this school, he was much interested in their views, and defended them in his Brief Account of the New Sect of Latitudinarians (1662). He was for a time a Presbyterian minister, but took orders in the Church of England in 1654... He was a voluminous author, producing fifty-one works, and is best known as a commentator.
