Henry Calderwood (1830–1897) was a professor of moral philosophy at the University of Edinburgh, where he was educated. He was ordained through the United Presbyterian Church of Scotland and pastored at the Greyfriars church in Glasgow. His first and most famous work, The Philosophy of the Infinite, was a response to the emerging philosophy that man cannot possibly know the infinite divine; consequently, Calderwood’s thought was a complete antithesis to Hegelian doctrine. The Parables of Our Lord was among his best-known religious works.
