“Cornelius Davis (1760-1831) was a bookseller and publisher. He also edited theological pamphlets and periodicals, including the New York Theological Magazine [1796-1799]." - New York Society Library website. We also find Mr. Davis published The New-York Missionary Magazine (1800-1803) and The Utica Christian Magazine (1813-1816). We find him listed as a "bookseller and stationer" on Water-Street in New York City in the year 1800. It is likely that his own theological opinions were Calvinist, in that we see many Calvinistic writers in the periodicals that he edited. He had printed and sold John Gillies' Memoir of the life of the Rev. George Whitefield, in 1798, as well as sermons by John M. Mason, Andrew Fuller, Eliphalet Gillet, and Jedidiah Morse. He was also listed in the imprint as one of the sellers of Wilberforce's Practical View, printed in Boston by Manning & Loring in 1799.

The "Religious Intelligence" of this periodical consists of reports of revival and mission work in many places, including i Kentucky and Tennessee.
