The founder was Thomas Clark, who had a Free Church of Scotland background and the company was originally concerned with law and foreign literature.
In the 1830s, it began to develop a theology list, taking a progressive Evangelical stance and at times, publishing books that were not likely to make a profit. Its most substantial projects were the English translation of the Ante-Nicene Fathers and the Encyclopaedia of Religion and Ethics. These were only viable because of the existence of a large American market; however, in the 1880s the firm got into a dispute with the Fleming H. Revell Company, over the American firm's copyright violation of some of T&T Clark's titles. The Ante-Nicene Library was bootlegged by the Christian Literature Company, based in New York City, New York. However, this did not prevent T&T Clark from doing business with them.
In 2003, the three religious academic imprints of Sheffield Academic Press, Trinity Press International and T&T Clark were united under one imprint. Continuum was acquired by Bloomsbury Publishing in 2011.
