*HUSSEYITES, a name appropriated to the admirers of Mr. Joseph Hussey, formerly of Cambridge, a learned but eccentric divine. His principal peculiarities of opinion were— the pre-existence of Christ's human soul, or rather of a spiritual or glorious body, in which he appeared to the patriarchs, &c. his high supra-lapsarian notions of the divine decrees, and his objection to all offers or invitations to unconverted sinners.[1] See Supra-lapsarians and Crispites.
