A philosophical examination and discussion of a tour of the Near East undertaken in 1861-62 by John Stuart-Glennie and his traveling companion, the English historian, Henry Thomas Buckle. Throughout the course of the tour there occurs an appraisal of Christianity's birthplace and early history replete with philosophical speculation from the sympathetic, but skeptical, materialist-rationalist perspectives of the author and Mr. Buckle, regarding religion's place in the lawful progress of civilizational history.
