Summary:
Exploring the rich relationship between historical thought and religious debate in Victorian culture, 'God and Progress' offers a unique and authoritative account of intellectual change in 19th-century Britain. The volume recovers a twofold process in which the growth of progressive ideas of history transformed British Protestant traditions, as religious debate, in turn, profoundly shaped Victorian ideas of history. It adopts a remarkably wide contextual perspective, embracing believers and unbelievers, Anglicans and nonconformists, and writers from different parts of the British Isles, fully situating British debates in relation to their European and especially German Idealist surroundings.
