Notes:
"This new Dover edition, first published in 1960, is an unabridged and unaltered republication of the first edition that appeared in 1896."
"This is the most thorough account ever written of the great religious-scientific battles, and remains an eloquent testament to the scientific spirit. It is also, by the nature of its subject, a detailed collection of the important myths of Western culture. And finally, it becomes a history of the changes in religious dogma made necessary by advances in man's knowledge of his universe."--Cove.
