Charles Hodge (1797-1878)

Professor of theology and eventually president of Princeton Seminary who helped to establish the Princeton theology prominent in nineteenth-century America. Hodge founded and edited the Princeton Review and published the three-volume Systematic Theology, both of which had widespread influence. Hodge is often remembered for claiming that a new idea never came out of Princeton Seminary, highlighting his commitment to propagating traditional Calvinism. Like other Princeton theologians of his time, he often linked personal piety with a passion for Reformed theology.
