THE thoughtful student, in scanning the religious history of the race has one fact continually forced upon his notice, viz., that there is an invariable tendency to deify whomsoever shows himself superior to the weakness of our common humanity. Look where we will, we find the saint like man exalted into a divine personage and worshiped for a god.

    Minimally informative. Short essay that would not make a very engaging book jacket advertisement. Not a book but a pamphlet actually, and at about the level of erudition you would expect at a poorly curated museum.
