a significant English radical religious writer, usually identified as a central figure among the Ranters. He is known principally for The light and dark sides of God (1650). This work was regarded as blasphemous. After the Blasphemy Act of August 1650, he was arrested, convicted, and bored or burned through the tongue. Bauthumley denied that the Bible was the Word of God, and that Christ was more divine than other men. He considered that the real Devil lay in human nature, while God dwells in the flesh of man.
