Quotes about MauriceEdit

  • Maurice is equally opposed to the sacerdotalism which makes the essence of religion consist in a magical removal of penalties instead of a 'regeneration' of the nature. He takes what may be vaguely called the 'subjective' view of religion, and sympathises with Schleiermacher's statement that piety is 'neither a knowing nor a doing, but an inclination and determination of the feeling.'
    • Leslie Stephen, The English Utilitarians, Vol 3, John Stuart Mill. 1900.
