Reiske does not seem to have appreciated Taylor's "very pure Latin."

"DictioTaylori Latina hand placet: obscura, affectnta, putidu est. Sed pan cos novi Anglos, qui Latine scribere didirlssent. Latino? linguw neglect us illi genti communis est. Et tamen Taylor, si ud alios Anglos spectetur, adhuc bene scribit. Melius si scisset Latine, non vituperasset Wolnum.'1

"Keiske appears to have made a too indiscriminate use of the materials thus supplied. The reputation of his predecessor he treats with little tenderness or delicacy.

Taylor, John, M.D. Paper in Ed. Med. Ess., 1733.

Taylor, John, D.D., a learned Unitarian, b. near Lancaster, 1694; was for nearly twenty years minister and schoolmaster at Kirkstead, Lincolnshire; became pastor of a Presbyterian congregation at Norwich, 1733, and left this place to superintend an academy at Warrington, Lancashire, 1757; d. 1761. His principal works aro the following: 1. The Scriptural Doctrine of Original Sin proposed to Free and Candid Examination, Lon., 1738, 8vo ; 1740,8vo, (Supp., 1741, 8vo ; 1761, 8vo;) 3d ed., Belfast, 1746, 12mo; Lon., 1750, 12mo; 4th ed., so called, with Supp., Ac, and, now added, A Reply to Wesley, 1767, 8vo. John Wesley's Answer to Taylor is entitlod The Doctrine of Original Sin according to the Scripture, Reason, and Experience, 1757. 8vo. Jonathan Edwards's answer, (pub. after his death,) The Great Christian Doctrine of Original Sin Defended ; containing a Reply to the Objections of Dr. John Taylor, 1758, Svo; 1767, 8vo, (see. also, Edwards's Works.) has been already referred to, {edwards, Jonathan, pp. 545, 546.) See, also, Niles, Samuel, No. 4. Taylor {nt supra) notices some other opponents. 2. A Paraphrase and Notes on tho Epistle to the Romans; to which is prefixed a Key to tho Apostolio Writings, Ac, 1745, 4to; Dubl., 1746, Svo; 2d and best ed., 1747, 4to; 3d ed., 1754, 4to; 4th ed., 1769, 4to. The Key is repub. in Bishop Watson's Collection of Tracts, who observes that it "is greatly admired by the learned, as containing the best introduction to the Epistles, and the clearest account of the whole gospel scheme, which was ever written."

But see Memuiam, Rev. Joseph, No. 1. The Key, abridged, 4c by Thomas Howe, was pub. 1805, 12mo.

Of Taylor's Paraphrases and Notes, Ac. it has been remarked,

"It would bo wrong to deny that it contains mnrkH both of learning and genius, and that several things in it nre worthy of attention. But its complete perversion of scriptural doctrine on the most important topics, and the latitude of it* principles of interpretation, render it a wry dangerous book. Dr. Doddridge said very justly of it, th:it Dr. Taylor bad broke his key in Paul's epistles."—Orntc's Jiihl. Bib.

An eminent prelate declares Taylor's system in this Key to be

"nothing more than an artificial accommodation of Scripture phrases to notions utterly repugnant to Christian doctrine."— ARCfiBifliiOl' Magke: Discount* ott the AUmrment, 181-188, 191201,322-333.

"The author that lately has been so fummm for his corrupt doctrine. In his piece which he calls A Key to the Apostolic Writings, where he delivers hisscln*nie of religion (which seems scarcely so agreeable to the Christian scheme us the. doctrine of many of the wiser Heathen.") 4c.—Jonathan Edwards: Reply to Williams, Part 3, sect. iv.

"Contains several valuable philological illiittrHtions of the Epistle to the Romans."— Home's Bibl. Bib., 319.

See, also, Lockk, John, No. 6, (p. 1115.)

3. The Scripture Doctrine of Atonement Examined, 1750, 8vo: 1753, 8vo. 4. The Hebrew Concordance adapted to the English Bible; disposed after the Manner of Buxtorf, 1754-57, 2 vols, fol., £10.

"This is one of the most laborious and most useful works ever published for the advancement of Hebrew knowledge and the understanding of the Old Testament in its original language. It is, in fact, a Grammar, Lexicon, and Concordance, founded on the Concordance of Buxtorf, all whose errors Dr. Taylor has corrected. . . . The price of this Concordance varies from nine to twelve guineas, according to its condition."—Home's Bibl. Bib., 1839, 306.

In sale-catalogues of the last few years it is generally priced between two and three guineas, (18611.)

"This is by far the must complete and ttie most nseful work of the kind, especially to the English scholar."—Orme's Bibl. Bib., 1824,113.

"May be considered as an abridgment of thennited labours of Buxturf and Cftlasio."—Wiltiamg's C P., 5th ed., 281.

See, also, Bickersteth's C. S., 4th ed., 421.

But the Biblical student of the present day has greater treasures in the following works, by Dr. Julius Fuerst: I. Librorum Vet. Testament! Concordantife HebraicaB atone Cbaldaicse, Ac, Lipsite, 1840, r. 4to; II. Bibliotheca Judaico, Ac, 1849-63, 3 vols. r. 8vo.

5. A Scheme of Scripture Divinity, 1762, 8vo; 1763, 8vo. Posth.: pub. by his son. Repub. in Bishop Watson's Collec. of Tracts, vol. i. For a notice of Taylor and his other publications, see Chalmers's Biog. Diet., xzix. 177.

Taylor, John, LL.D.. Rector of Bosworth, Leicestershire, Minister of St. Margaret's, Westminster, the schoolfellow and for many years the intimate friend of Dr. Samuel Johnson, was appointed Preh. of Westminster, July 11, 1746, and d. Feb. 19, 1788. After his death the Rev. Mr. Hayes published Sermons on Different Subjects, left for publication by John Taylor, LL.D.. Ac, Lon., 1788-89,2 vols. 8vo; 2d'ed., 1790, 2 vols. Svo; 3d ed.. 1795, 2 vols. 8vo; 4th cd., 1800, 2 vols. Svo; 4th ed., 1812, 8vo. The 25th and last sermon was written by Dr. Johnson on the death of his wife: but we doubt not (we have read them all carefully) that Dr. Johnson is entitled to the credit of all of them:

"There is not a man in England who knows any thing of l)r. Johnson's peculiarities of stylethut will not instantly pronounce these sermons to be his."—Bishop Porteus tn Dr. Beattie, 17*8.

"There can be no doubt that the sermons were Johnson's." —Crosier, 1847: BoswcWs Johnson, ed. 1848, ch. lx. See, also, Index.

Boswcll also believed them to bo Johnson's.

"Indeed," continues Bishop Porteus, "they are (some of them, at least) in his very best manner; and Taylor was no more capable of writing them than of making an epic poem."

"They possess the manly strength, the nervous perspicuity, the pointed energy, of Johnson's own works."—Critical Rev.

Taylor, John, grandson of the Chevalier John Taylor, and son of John Taylor, also Oculist to George III., was in early life, in conjunction with his brother Jeremiah, Oculist to George III., and subsequently for many years connected with the theatres (as author of poetical sketches, prologues, epilogues, addresses, Ac.) and the periodical press, (The Morning Herald, The Sun, Ac.,) and d.
