ABSTRACT
The article aims to show the impact of theologian and social innovator Thomas Chalmers' social experiment for de-pauperisation in his parish of St. Johns in Scotland on nineteenth century British social policy and seeks to modify the standard historical view on Chalmers shaped by lecturer R. A. Cage and author R. Mitchison. Economic Historian B. Hilton views Chalmers as continuing the eighteenth century tradition of rationalistic and mechanistic natural theology and mixing it with his belief in atonement. Chalmers argued that nature was in free operation in the mechanism of the original Scottish parochial system.
