Francis Wayland – Classical Liberal?

One of the great things about studying history is seeing when a figure that you admire shares similar views on subjects other than what he is known for. Francis Wayland is one of the great American Baptists who upheld liberty of conscience when it came to religious conviction, was a supporter of the mission movement and wrote against slavery (for more on Wayland, see Dr. Haykin’s post). It therefore should come as no surprise that his political views run along the same lines. My friend Mark has a seven-point summary of Wayland’s views on private property.
