His Eminence Dean Close





Religion, Faith, Discovery, Religious Authority

    Quotes from a correspondent in The Times the assertion that the Dean of Carlisle, Francis Close, was guilty of assuming that 'science must necessarily, and actually does, tend to the subversion of the Christian religion' and that Christianity views 'scientific discovery' with 'contemptuous antagonism'. Thinks this shows that 'Extremes meet', noting the proximity of the evangelical Close's views to those of Pope Pius IX.
