(p.166) 7 Religion and Science
Frederick Temple, Archbishop of Canterbury


Oxford University Press

This chapter focuses on Temple’s views about the relationship between religion and science. He gave full credit to scientists for setting out to discover every law in the universe which it was possible to establish, and promised to find ‘the finger of God’ in each of them, for the bible did not demand ‘confirmation of minute details’ but recognition of a deep identity of ‘tone, character and spirit’ between scripture and nature.
