Abstract

Bishop Stillingfleet took the authority of canonical scripture as the foundation of the protestant case. Radical critics, in particular Samuel Fisher and John Toland, undermined this by pointing to the different versions of the canonical texts, the disputes about the canon, and the existence of apocryphal texts which might have been included.
