Chapter Summary

This front matter section of this book titled Nature and Scripture in the Abrahamic religions : 1700-present contains acknowledgements, a notes on contributors and a list of illustrations. 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; biological research; Darwin?s theory; protestant church
