Peter Taylor Forsyth

1848-1921. Congregationalist theologian. A postman's son in Aberdeen, he was educated at the university there, then studied at Göttingen under A. Ritschl.* After serving various Congregational churches in England, he became in 1901 principal of Hackney College, London, a post he retained until his death. Keenly interested in historical critical theology, and concerned to open the way to a “better, freer, larger Church,” he took part in the Leicester Conference which had such aims in 1877, and was suspected in his denomination of heterodoxy.
