Abstract

The Stone-Campbell Movement has been singled out by the scholarly commu-
nity for relying upon Scottish Baconianism. For this reason scholars outside the
movement routinely belittle it, and scholars within either downplay, criticize,
or strive to move beyond such reliance. A closer examination of primary sources
reveals  that  Scottish  Baconianism  is  not  as  intrinsic  to  the  Stone-Campbell
vision as is often assumed and that Campbell himself offers resources for tran-
scending it.
