THE

CHRISTIAN EXAMINER

AND

RELIGIOUS MISCELLANY.

NOVEMBER, 1851.

Art. I.-ELIAS HICKS, AND THE HICKSITE QUAKERS.*

The name of Elias Hicks has attained a notoriety by himself wholly unanticipated, and probably undesired. He has been made, against his will, as it seems to us, an heresiarch, and has been placed at the head of a sect, to which his name has been attached.

The consequence has been, that his character has been the subject of the most contradictory representations. His friends and admirers have thought him almost an apostle, while his enemies and opposers seem to regard him as a sort of Lucifer, a man largely endowed by nature, but using his powers chiefly for mischief; not satisfied with wandering off into error himself, but drawing after him, like the old Dragon, a third part of the stars by the sweep of his tail.
