Samuel Angus

Samuel Angus (27 August 1881 – 17 November 1943) was professor of New Testament and Church History at St Andrew's College in the University of Sydney from 1915 to 1943. His outspoken views of Christian theology were criticized by the Presbyterian Church of Australia, leading to formal charges of heresy. Angus was later acquitted of these charges after an investigation conducted by the Juridical Commission of the Church.

Angus rejected many of the core traditional Christian beliefs, including the doctrine of the Trinity, the Biblical inspiration, the virgin birth and bodily resurrection of Christ.

Angus earned an M.A. at Queen's College, Galway, and a second M.A. and a Ph.D. from Princeton University. He attended Princeton Theological Seminary, but did not complete a degree. He held a lectureship at Hartford Theological Seminary from 1906 to 1910 and another in Louisville, Kentucky in 1912. Angus served as Visiting Professor of Education at Columbia University from 1929 to 1931.
