Excerpt from The History of English Rationalism in the Nineteenth Century, Vol. 1 of 2

At the same time, although myself a rationalist, I wish to guard against the notion that this work is intended as a contribution to the controversial literature of rationalism. It would neither surprise nor annoy me to hear that the religious convictions of no single reader had been changed by its perusal. But I own that it would be disappointing to hear that I had thrown no fresh light on the evolution of opinion as such. And if I am not liable to that charge, if I have made the courses of thought a little more intelligible, then my book ought to interest serious students of history, whatever their opinions may happen to be. However dogmatic their beliefs, I trust that they will not be deterred from reading it merely because they find the Opposite view stated with unequivocal decision in its pages.

Book Description Forgotten Books. Paperback. Condition: New. This item is printed on demand. 478 pages. Dimensions: 9.0in. x 6.0in. x 1.0in.Excerpt from The History of English Rationalism in the Nineteenth Century, Vol. 1 of 2In a letter addressed to Archbishop Benson on his acceptance of the Primacy, more than twenty-three years ago, Dr. Fenton Hort mentions as the most formidable perils then in prospect for the English Church, the danger of its calm and unobtrusive alienation in thought and spirit from the great silent multitude of Englishmen, and again of alienation from fact and love of fact; - mutual alienations both. In my opinion this alienation from fact and love of fact is an evil already afflicting not only the English Church, but all the religious communities in England; and in writing the history of modern English Rationalism I have tried to trace the process by which it has been brought about. For the alienation, as Hort observes, is mutual; and to set fact at odds with faith is to rationalise. Owing to the singular intellectual decline of England, as distinguished from Scotland and Ireland, daring the period immediately preceding the French Revolution, criticism of religious beliefs by English writers in the nineteenth century seems to begin almost de novo, like the contemporary revival of literature and science, under the influence of extraneous excitements. Thus the period treated of in this work is marked off from previous periods not merely by our artificial system of chronology, but by what may be called a true scientific frontier in time.
