John Hutchinson

John Hutchinson (1674-1737) was both a Heb­rew scholar and an early student of paleontology, follow­ing his friend and colleague John Woodward. As Steward to the Duke of Somerset, he developed a strong system of natural philosophy fully consistent with orthodox Chris­tianity. Like Woodward, he strongly defended the Bibli­cal flood as the cause of all major geological landforms.
