Hoskyns, Edwyn Clement


Hoskyns, Edwyn Clement
(1884–1937)
English baronet who studied theology in Berlin under Harnack [[➝ Harnack, Adolf von]] and was an influential NT teacher at Cambridge. He translated K. Barth's [[➝ Barth, Karl]] commentary on the epistle to the Romans; though an Anglo-Catholic in sacramental doctrine, he was influenced by the Calvinist tone of Barth's dogmatic theology. He was opposed to fashionable liberal theology and once observed that NT eschatology fortunately protected the doctrine of God from evolutionary theories of history.
