Excerpt from Essays on Cathedrals: By Various Writers

I am sure that in being the instrument of bringing these Essays together, I am rendering a greater service to the public, than if I were to publish in detail any thoughts of my own concerning Cathedrals. The names of the writers in this volume are a guarantee for the value of what they have written; and the mere fact that they have complied with the request which I ventured to lay before them, shows that the subject is felt, by men whose judgment is worthy of great respect, to be of considerable importance. It is requisite, at the same time, to add that each writer in this book is absolutely and separately responsible for that which appears with his signature, and that the publication of the book represents no combined plan, except so far as any of the separate authors may have chosen to confer with one another.

For myself, a short experience of about four years in a Cathedral city has sufficed to convince me of the immense opportunities possessed by the Cathedral system, if it were fully developed, to do useful work for the Church and the Country. Nothing seems to me to be more adapted, with due modifications, to meet some of the urgent wants of our times, to bring new life out of old forms, and to animate and consolidate various existing agencies for religious good. What some of those modifications ought to be, is suggested in the following pages. The subject is there presented in various points of view.
