E. Cobham Brewer 1810–1897. Dictionary of Phrase and Fable. 1898.
Scholastic Divinity.
Divinity subjected to the test of reason and argument, or at least “darkened by the counsel of words.” The Athanasian creed is a favourable specimen of this attempt to reduce the mysteries of religion to “right reason;” and the attempts to reconcile the Mosaic cosmogony with modern geology smack of the same school.   1
