W. E. Gladstone : Church and State

Lord Mahon to John Murray, 7 December 1840: 'Mr. Gladstone's volume has of late engaged much of my attention. It is difficult to feel quite free from partiality where so amiable and excellent a man is concerned; but, if my friendship does not blind me, I should pronounce his production as marked by profound ecclesiastical learning, and eminent native ability. At the same time I must confess myself startled at some of his tenets; his doctrine of Private Judgment [sic] especially seems to me a contradiction in terms, attempting to blend together the incompatible advantages of the Romanist and of the Protestant principle upon that point.'

Century: 1800-1849     Reader/Listener/Group: Lord Mahon      Print: Book
