This chapter traces the intellectual formation of Ussher at Trinity College Dublin, following the early impact of Ramism, and examining the puritan, even presbyterian nature of the College. Rather than seeing Trinity in narrow sectarian terms, it is argued that the College and Ussher were part of a broadly-based Calvinist church, which embraced puritans and presbyterians, and focused their energies not on internal disagreement, but on countering the theological threat of Catholicism.

Keywords:   Ramism, puritanism, presbyterianism, anti-Catholicism
