Christianity and Agnosticism
Consisting of Papers By:
D. APPLETON AND COMPANY
The undisputed interest taken in the recent controversy between the Rev. Dr. Henry Wace, Principal of King's College, London, and Prof. Huxley, over the question of the true significance of agnosticism, and incidentally of the limits of natural knowledge; and the difficulty of getting at the complete discussion when scattered thorough different publications, have induced the publishers to bring the articles together in a single volume.
The opening paper, which led directly to those that follow, was read at the Church Congress in Manchester in 1888. The paper on "The Value of Witness to the Miraculous," though not strictly a part of the controversy, was published by Prof. Huxley while it was going on, and its direct bearing on the question at issue is a sufficient reason for its insertion. Mr. Mallock's paper on "Cowardly Agnosticism," and also that of Mrs. Humphry Ward, to which Dr. Wace makes reply in his second article, are included for the valuable side-lights they throw upon the general subject under discussion.
Note:* In this computerized version of this work all footnotes will follow immediately after the paragraph containing the asterisk (*) and not at the bottom of the page as in the printed volumes. These notes will be between lines at the top and bottom (the same as this note) and we suggest these notes be skipped over when reading for general information. This is necessary to prevent the notes from being misplaced in the various electronic formats this work will be transfered into.
