I'm only giving this book two stars, not because most of what is in it is antiquated, there are many books that suffer with this, but because the author was obviously suffering from a handicap. Apparently Christianity was the one true religion and everything else was false. Not a good attitude for a historian who is trying to talk about pagan religions and ancient philosophy...

Great book. A little bit skewiff when discussing hinduism but as far as 19th century authors go they know their stuff more than any of their other contemporaries of the time.

“I believe that systems of religion are perfect or imperfect, true or false, just so far as they agree or disagree with Christianity; and that to the end of time all systems are to be measured by the Christian standard, and not Christianity by any other system.” 0 likes
