Richard Watson (1781-1833), English Wesleyan theologian. Watson began preaching at age 15, and was active in field & missionary work. His Institutes were the first Wesleyan systematic theology, and he was highly esteemed by his contemporaries for both his intellectual genius and his holy character.
"Richard Watson’s Theological Institutes was a critical landmark in the development of Methodist doctrine. Originally published in 1831 in four volumes, Watson’s work was the first attempt to systematize John Wesley’s theology. Influencing and guiding the later systematic theological work for Methodist theology, Watson’s Institutes was the main Methodist textbook for systematic theological studies and remained a primary text for over 50 years after his death." - Jake Mailhot, logos blog.
