NOTE BY THE EDITOR.
THE Lectures contained in this volume were delivered at different times and in various places during the later years of Mr. Baldwin Brown's life, and if that life had been prolonged he would himself have prepared them for the press. They are now published at the earnest desire of many who heard them, with but slight alteration, the characteristic freedom of a spoken address being purposely retained. Though not originally given in one course, the Lectures are essentially related in their leading ideas and method of treatment, and are arranged chronologically as a consecutive series.
Certain portions of the fifth Lecture were included in an essay on 'The Religious Life,' in 'Ecclesia' (first series), and are reproduced here by kind permission of the publishers. With that exception all that is contained in the book appears now for the first time.
