The Emancipation of the Spirit

Tidbits, J. D.
June 1917
America;6/2/1917, Vol. 17 Issue 8, p183
The author examines the concept of Protestant reformation. He notes that whatever motives lay behind the movement, they were secular rather than religious. He asserts that its effect upon art and literature and upon civilization, is said to be not favorable. He argues to that emancipation much material progress and theological progress must be traced.
