Grantley gives him 3 pages beginning in Biblical Criticism on p. 156, after that he shows up often in Newton.Thomas Smith (scholar) - (1638-1710)
Bibliotheca Biblica: A Select List of Books on Sacred Literature; with Notices Biographical, Critical, and Bibliographical (1824)
In Ghost of Arius he is part of a section:
11. Reactions to Simon's work: Gilbert Burnet, Thomas Smith, Antoine Boucat, Thomas Firmin
Earlier John Evelyn and Edmund Calamy and Stillingfleet are placed as Simon critics and responders, including sermons,
Gilbert Burnet - (own page planned)
Dictionnaire universel des sciences ecclésiastiques (1868)
Theologia Patrum dogmatica Scholastico-Positiva... (1726) p. 221-230 (check more exactly)
Simon found another detractor in the Franciscan Antoine Boucat (†1730), professor of theology at Paris. In his Theologia patrurn scholastico-dogmatica (1716), Boucat reheated some of Roger’s arguments against Simon, and argued strenuously for the comma as the “legitimate offspring of St John” (genuinus S. loannis foetus). Boucat bases his argument on internal grounds (the apparent coherence of the seventh and eight verses) and external evidence (the fact that the comma was quoted and taught by the Fathers from Tertullian onwards). In an appeal to the strength of ecclesiastical authority, Boucat asserts that Simon had drawn upon himself the anathema of the council of Trent for daring to challenge its affirmation of the canonicity of the Johannine epistles.117117 Boucat, 1766, IV:321-331. Filser, 2001, 521, cites Boucat as typical of the return to dogma in early eighteenth-century Catholicism. Boucat, Antoine. Theologia patrum scholastic-dogmatica, sed maxinte positiva. Venice: Ghirardi,1766.
also Prudent Maran and Louis Roger are in the section
Planned: Review Section: others far more important than Firmin wrote contra Simon, eg. Martianay, Fredrich Spanheim the younger, maybe Toinard and others. Firmin is notably a bit unusual and makes an interesting side-read.
====================Thomas Firmin (1632-1697)
The Life of Mr. Thomas Firmin, Citizen of London (1780)
on p. 126 is his Trinity view
Grantley gives a small quote from the 2-page section that Firmin has on the heavenly witnesses.
Anon. The Charitable Samaritan: or, a Short and Impartial Account of that Eminent, and Publick-spirited Citizen Mr. Tho. Firmin. London: [n. p.], 1698a.
Firmin is pro-Simon, although there is no indication that he was particularly involved in Bible textual matters, other than repeating from Simon. He is variously called a Unitarian, or perhaps having Sabellian tendencies.
