Darwinismo y religión en el Reino Unido durante el periodo Mid-Victoriano

April 2009
Anuario de Historia de la Iglesia;2009, Vol. 18, p27
The impact of Darwin's Origin of Species was reinforced in the religious sphere by the publication of Essays and Reviews a few months later. Evolutionism and German exegetical theories seemed to undermine the foundations of the faith. The negative reactions to evolutionism, however, were not purely on religious grounds; many scientists found it difficult to match evolutionism with the scientific data available at the time. As new discoveries removed some of those objections, some aspects of the new theory found more supporters, also among the different religious denominations.
