On the 'Wallingford Controversy'. Suspected of 'Old Light' tendencies, James Dana became minister of the Congregational Church in Wallingford in 1758, succeeding Samuel Whittlesey, who had died in 1752. The Consociation, dominated by 'New Light' ministers, forbade his ordination. The ordaining council and Dana ignored its edict. The Consociation then "passed sentence of non-communion upon" Dana and the members of the ordaining council [DAB]. Hobart had defended the Consociation's position; Hart rebuts Hobart.
