Charles Buck Theological Dictionary
Is that part or species of divinity which clears and discusses questions by reason and argument; in which sense it stands, in some measure, opposed to positive divinity, which is founded on the authority of fathers, councils, &c. The school divinity is not fallen into contempt, and is scarcely regarded any where but in some of the universities, where they are still by their charters obliged to teach it.
