He particularly opposed the evangelical secession around George Baring (1781–1854), the “western Schism”. A lengthy catalogue of Biddulph’s writings is in Bibliotheca Cornubiensis. All his works were of evangelical doctrine and theology; he engaged in controversy with John Hey, Richard Warner, and Richard Mant. A periodical called at first Zion’s Trumpet, then known for many years under as The Christian Guardian,’ was set up him in 1798.
