MUGGLETONIANISM   
[ ]

 
Lodowicke (or Lodowick) Muggleton (1609–98) and his cousin John Reeve (1608–58) were the founders of the Muggletonians, a small Christian sect that denied the doctrine of the Trinity, believed that God would no longer interfere in human affairs after the revelation of their founders, and condemned prayer and preaching.  In addition to these more prosaic theological doctrines, Reeve also held that the Sun went around the earth and that the sphere of the heavens was not above six miles high from the surface of the earth.
