Lord Acton's essays on liberal Catholicism demonstrate the breadth and brilliance of his thought and the strength of his advocacy as the liberal intellectual of the last century.

Also included are three important essays, "Human Sacrifice," "George Eliot's Life," and "Buckle's Philosophy of History."
