3 C. A. Russell writes, "In their bitter battle for scientific hegemony the Victorian scientific naturalists fought largely in vain. But in establishing their myth of an enduring conflict between religion and science they were successful beyond their wildest expectations." See "The Conflict Metaphor and Its Social Origins," in Science and Christian Belief I (1989), 26. Among the best accounts and critiques of the "warfare" thesis, see the following: James R. Moore, The Post-Darwinian Controversies: A Study of the Protestant Struggle to Come to Terms with Darwin in Great Britain and America 18701900 (Cambridge: Cambridge University Press, 1979); David Lindberg and Ronald Numbers, "Beyond War and Peace: A Reappraisal of the Encounter between Christianity and Science," Church History 55 (1986): 338-354; David N.

5 For recent efforts to describe the various ways of envisioning the complex relationships between theology and science, relevant to the nineteenth-century situation, see Ian G. Barbour, "Ways of Relating Science and Religion," in Religion in an Age of Science, The Gifford Lectures 1889-1891, vol. 1, chap. 1 (New York: Harper & Row, 1990); Frederick Gregory, Nature Lost?
