Charles Hodge (1797-1878) was a scholar, educator, churchman, and distinguished American Presbyterian systematic theologian of the nineteenth century. During his half-century tenure at Princeton, Charles Hodge held several chairs, but is probably best remembered for the reputation he established as Professor of Systematic Theology. A stout Calvinist with a deep love for the Reformed confessions, his literary labours often involved a polemical thrust, as he sought to defend and expound the Reformed theology of the Protestant Reformation.
