TRANSLATOR'S PREFACE.

This translation has been made from the fourth edition, published in 1876, of Dr. F. Reusch’s Bibel und Natur. In consequence of the rapid progress of science, some portions of the book required alteration ; and the whole work has accordingly been revised by the author, and several additions and corrections have been made. Nevertheless the translator does not wish to be thought to agree entirely with all the details of the work, especially with regard to some of the arguments employed in that portion of the second part which deals with the Theory of Descent. In spite, however, of a few shortcomings, the book will, it is believed, be found to be an extremely valuable and learned summary of the teaching of the Church on the relations between Science and Religion.

The translation would be more faulty than it is, but for the kind help of several friends, and especially of Baron Anatole von Hügel, Curator of the Cambridge Museum of Archæology, who revised pp. 289–313, and has made many valuable suggestions.

K. LYTTELTON.

FEBRUARY 25, 1886.
