Faith and Morals
Theology in the nineteenth century was characterized by an openness to philosophical and scientific thought. Under the influence first of Hegel and later of Darwin, theologians argued that God was not so much a transcendent being as an immanent force, unfolding and realizing itself in time. Each fresh advance of humanity became a new step in the self-realization of the Divine.
