History of Christian Doctrine. Now reappears his preference for the ancients over the men of the hour, still more Hrmly grounded on the " conviction that there were some minds in the former ages of Chris- tianity who were called by Providence to do a work that will never be outgrown and left behind by the Christian Churchf' He goes to Athanasius for theology proper, to Augustine for anthropology, and to Anselm 'for soteriology. To a mind like that of Dr. Shedd there must have been deep congeniality in the learned Alexandrian so often exiled in the West, in the Latin rhetorician converted and raised to be Bishop of Hippo, and in the Abbot of Bec exalted to the archbishopric of Canter- bury. lt would be difhcult to name three souls in the Christian era to whom he would be more likely to fasten through aflinity than Athanasius ponderingthe problem of the Trinity, Augustine sounding the dark depths of Sin, and Anselm answering the question, " Cur Deus Homo ?

It is not necessary to coincide with Dr. Shedd in all regards in order to admire his splendid attainrnents and masterly ability. "These are my views," he would say, and there was an end of urging.
