THE

RELIGION OF GEOLOGY

AND ITS

CONNECTED SCIENCES.

BY

EDWARD HITCHCOCK, D.D., LL.D.,
PRESIDENT OF AMHERST COLLEGE, AND PROFESSOR OF NATURAL -

THEOLOGY AND GEOLOGY.

"Science has a foundation, and so has religion; let them unite their foundations, and the basis will be
broader, and they will be two compartments of one great fabric reared to the glory of God. Let the one be
the outer and the other the inner court. In the one, let all look, and admire, and adore; and in the other,
let those who bave faith kneel, and pray, and praise. Let the one be the sanctuary where human learning
may present its richest incense as an offering to God; and the other the holiest of all, separated from it by a
Veil now rent in twain, and in which, on a blood-sprinkled mercy-seat we pour out the love of a reconciled
heart, and hear the oracles of the living God." V Cosh.
