A Portrait of a Younger R. B. C. Howell
When R. B. C. Howell, editor at that time of The Baptist in 1835, received a request to tell "how the name Baptist took its origin." He replied, "Those who are now called Baptists, have been in different ages of the Church, called by various names. Let it be observed, however, that . . . from the days of 'John the Baptist' until now, they have ever maintained the same doctrinal and practical tenets by which they are still distinguished. They were first called Christians at Antioch, afterwards Donatists, then Cathari, then Waldenses, Albigenses, Mennonites, Petrobrussians, Waterlanders, Anabaptists, and finally Baptists." [The Baptist, I, No. 5 (May, 1835), 70.]
