Chapter Summary

This section presents a list of names, terms and concepts that occur in this book titled Nature and Scripture in the Abrahamic religions : 1700-present . Darwin?s theory of evolution rapidly gained acceptance in the Netherlands, first among biologists, who were almost unanimous in their acclaim for Darwin?s ideas about the origin of species. His theory had a profound influence on the practice of biological research and became a basic element in most of the university curricula in the 1880s. Outside the scientific community, Darwinism received a remarkably positive response from the majority of those belonging to the large liberal wing of the ruling protestant church.

Keywords: Abrahamic religions; Darwin?s theory; protestant church
