Description

A manuscript draft by Edward Hitchcock of the first five lectures included in his work "The Religion of Geology and its Connected Sciences." Hitchcock attempts to demonstrate the relationships between religion and geology while also discussing the relationship between religion and science in general. Hitchcock examines the relationship between science and what he calls "revealed religion" and also between science and "natural religion." These lectures focus on revelation, the creation of earth, death, deluges, and the world's supposed eternity. Throughout the work Hitchcock has crossed out sections, added pages, and pasted new writing over old.
