Lord Acton: Historian and Moralist

Be the first to review this product

“Historian and moralist”—Lord Acton is the only individual in the entire Oxford Dictionary of National Biography to receive that curious description. A unique individual, however, warrants a unique description, and Lord Acton was one of the most profound and peculiar individuals of the Victorian era. The essays in this volume introduce and engage the works and legacy of this brilliant scholar. Written by some of the world’s most respected authorities on Acton, these essays grapple with Acton’s ideas about history, morality, politics, religion, and revolution—all with an eye toward understanding that delicate and glorious ideal that impelled Acton himself, freedom.  Contributors: Josef L. Altholz, Christoph Böhr, Owen Chadwick, Samuel Gregg, James C. Holland, Russell Kirk, Johann Christian Koecke, Stephen J. Tonsor, Rudolf Uertz
