FOR CHRISTMAS AND ALL TIMES.

THE Epoch of the Reformation is, next to the Epoch of the

Gospel, that which furnishes History with its brightest page. By restoring to fallen Christendom the doctrine and the life of apostolic times, the Reformation has achieved a mighty work, secured the future developement of humanity, and prepared, for the nations who receive it, a reign of intellectual light, liberty, morality, order, and activity.

Roman Catholicism is a religion of the Middle Ages. Its empty superstitions, its perishable institutions, its church, mostly without spirit and without life, cannot exist in modern times: the Gospel must now make all things new. Already, if we compare Protestant with Romish nations— England and Spain, for instance-we may discern a remarkable difference between them. That comes from the Reformation.

It is important, therefore, that this great epoch should be better known; nay, more, it must become popular; and for that purpose it is fit it should be not only described in books, but represented by the productions of art. It is this end we have in view in laying before the public a few scenes in the life of the great Reformer.

This design has been conceived and executed by an eminent artist, whose name and family are equally known in France, England, and Holland, and who has already acquired an honourable reputation by his former works, especially by his two beautiful pictures of "Luther, Melancthon, Pomeranus, and Cruciger translating the Bible," and The Conference at Geneva in 1549." My estimable friend, M. Labouchere, desired me to describe with the pen the scenes which he has so ably depicted with his pencil. Although I felt my insufficiency for such a task, I did not think it right to be deaf to his repeated entreaties.

I have merely added some rough outlines to the finished work of M. Labouchere; for I know that, in publications of this kind, the whole attention is directed to the plates, and that the letterpress holds a secondary rank. Although it may be my fate not to be read, I have, nevertheless, had pleasure in carefully tracing these historic scenes of the Reformation of Luther. I thought I could not do better than take as my guide an expression of Luther's: "An animated narrative is like a picture, and is fixed far more deeply in the mind than an abstract doctrine."......I may add, that the scenes here laid before him are true historic scenes.

I have only now to express a desire that this publication, even while interesting its readers, may contribute, in some small degree, to make true Protestantism better known. Some one of these pictures may reveal the inner forces which have in modern times restored the living religion of the apostolic ages; while another may manifest the firmness with which its purity ought to be maintained. These two things truth and life—are necessary, so that amid the divers forms, more or less defective, of religious society, Evangelical Christianity may accomplish the task which God has assigned it, and be the true, powerful, and salutary religion.

This, to my mind, is the prime interest of human kind.
