  From  Webster's  Revised  Unabridged  Dictionary  (1913)  [web1913]: 
 
  Glassite  \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.
