Biography

Alline was for a while a min­is­ter at Fal­mouth, No­va Sco­tia. He is said to have found­ed a sect of Al­len­ites (his name is some­times spelled Al­len), who main­tained that Ad­am and Eve be­fore the fall had no cor­po­re­al bo­dies, and de­nied the re­sur­rect­ion of the bo­dy.

These pe­cul­iar views may have had a place in his prose works, but are not found in his 487 Hymns and Spi­ri­tu­al Songs, in five books. The third ed­it­ion was pub­lished in Do­ver and Bos­ton, Mas­sa­chu­setts, in 1797, and an­o­ther at Ston­ing­ton­port, Con­nec­ti­cut, in 1802.
