In Joseph Andrews, Henry Fielding shows himself most closely related to the latitudinarian philosophy. The latitudinarians believed that Christian grace could only come through benevolence and good works towards one's fellow men. Like the latitudinarians, Fielding was most outraged by the selfish and self-centered.
