THE WAR AND UNITY

BEING LECTURES DELIVERED AT THE LOCAL LECTURES SUMMER MEETING OF THE UNIVERSITY OF CAMBRIDGE, 1918

EDITED BY THE REV. D. H. S. CRANAGE, LITT.D. KING'S COLLEGE

CAMBRIDGE AT THE UNIVERSITY PRESS 1919

PREFACE

For some time past the Local Examinations and Lectures Syndicate have arranged a Summer Meeting in Cambridge every other year in connexion with the Local Lectures. The scheme of study has always included a number of theological lectures, and at the last two meetings an attempt has been made to deal with some of the religious and moral problems suggested by the War. In 1916 a course of lectures was delivered, and afterwards published by the University Press, on _The Elements of Pain and Conflict in Human Life_. In 1918 the Syndicate decided to arrange a course on Unity. It was at first suggested that the lectures should be confined to the subject of Christian Reunion, but it was finally arranged to deal not only with Unity between Christian Denominations, but with Unity between Classes, Unity in the Empire, and Unity between Nations.

Many of those who attended expressed a strong wish that the lectures should be published, and the Lecturers and the Syndicate have cordially agreed to their request. The central idea of the course is undeniably vital at the present time, and the book is now issued in the hope that it may be of some help in the period of "reconstruction."

D. H. S. CRANAGE, Secretary of the Cambridge University Local Lectures. _November 1918._
