Subject: Re: TH & JS Huxley Romanes Lectures

The Princeton U. Press edition of THH's Romanes Lecture, edited by
James Paradis and George C. Williams (1989), includes the editors'
essays on the Victorian social context of the lecture.  Paradis
states that Romanes established the lecture series with a stipulation
that "the subjects of politics and religion should not be broached"
(p. 215), but then chose Gladstone and Huxley as his first two
lecturers, certainly aware of their ongoing debate over revealed
religion and science.
Hope this tidbit helps.
