17111771, Jan 20
an English divine, known as a Hutchinsonian and Hebraist. He entered St. John's College, Cambridge, became B.A. 1730, and M.A. 1740. Bate, in 1745, wrote a pamphlet called Remarks upon Mr. Warburton's remarks, showing that the ancients knew there was a future state, and that the Jews were not under an equal providence. Bate published other pamphlets in defence of Hutchinson's mysticism, and on the corresponding interpretation of the Hebrew text. His major work is Critica Hebræa, or a Hebrew-English Dictionary without points, 1767; objection to the pointing of Hebrew was one of the characteristic tenets of the school.
