Description

image of the title page for The Andover Defence, a book containing statements from the defendants in the Andover Controversy case, their legal council, and character witnesses

The Andover Controversy arose in the late 19th century when a group of professors at Andover Theological Seminary rejected the conservative Andover Creed in favor of the so-called "New Theology" which allowed for the conversion / redemption of the non-converted after death. When the professors objected to signing the Creed every five years, they were sued by the trustees of the school. The board ousted the president, Egbert C. Smyth, who they saw as the leader of the dissension, but that decision was overturned by the Massachusetts Supreme Court in 1893.
