Secularism, Religion

    Maintains that 'the Queen is more Victorian than Mr. Gladstone', for the 'Queen, with her broad latitudinarianism, her supreme indifference to forms and ceremonies, and her steady devotion to the weighty matters of righteousness rather than to the tithe of mint, anise and cummin, represents far more faithfully the spirit of the times than any of her ecclesiastically minded subjects. The Victorian age may have witnessed the labours of Newman and Pusey and Liddon, but it was more conspicuously the age of Darwin, of Spencer, and of Mill' (587).
