Subject

Hitchcock, Edward, 1793-1864. The religion of geology and its connected sciences

Description

A manuscript draft by Edward Hitchcock of a lecture included in his work "The Religion of Geology and its Connected Sciences." This lecture, "Unity of the Divine Plan and Operation in all Ages of the World's History," is labeled as the seventh, but it is the eighth in the final published work. Hitchcock discusses the relationship between religion and geology while also discussing the relationship between religion and science in general. This lecture focuses on the idea of a divine plan, specifically that every part of the world is a piece of a whole with nature as the body and God as the soul. Hitchcock discusses ideas of continuance, adaptation, and design to demonstrate his point that a divine plan is reconcilable with science.
