dbo:abstract
  • Robert Lewis Dabney (March 5, 1820 – January 3, 1898) was an American Christian theologian, Southern Presbyterian pastor, Confederate States Army chaplain, and architect. He was also chief of staff and biographer to Stonewall Jackson. His biography of Jackson remains in print today. Dabney and James Henley Thornwell were two of Southern Presbyterianism's most influential scholars. They were both Calvinist, Old School Presbyterians, and social conservatives. Some conservative Presbyterians, particularly within the Presbyterian Church in America and the Orthodox Presbyterian Church, still value their theological writings, although both these churches have repudiated Dabney's and Thornwell's beliefs on race and support of antebellum slavery.

Dabney denounced public schools, which were rare in the South prior to Reconstruction, in often-racially-charged terms. His criticisms of public education became highly influential within the American conservative movement, as well as among theonomists such as Rousas John Rushdoony, who largely sympathized with the Confederacy. This is a biased, anachronistic and unfair assessment of Rushdoony who nowhere in his many works advocated for the Confederacy or racism against blacks. (en)
