Meaning of GLASSITE

 
Webster's 1913 Dictionary
 
 Definition: 
\Glass"ite\, n.
A member of a Scottish sect, founded in the 18th century by
John Glass, a minister of the Established Church of Scotland,
who taught that justifying faith is ``no more than a simple
assent to the divine testimone passively recived by the
understanding.'' The English and American adherents of this
faith are called Sandemanians, after Robert Sandeman, the
son-in-law and disciple of Glass.
