History Teaching

Sir,-I was very surprised to read Student's complaint of Anti Catholic bias in the History Schools of the Universities today. My own recent experience has been that scholars today present a great contrast to their Victorian forbears in their recognition of the great social and cultural debt of Western Civilisation to the Church. They recognise her as the only driving force against chaos in the mediaeval world and a stable and unchanging influence in modem times: they are able to make extremely acute and sympathetic assessments of the difficulties and motives of the church and it is comparatively rare for a modern scholar to confuse the human instrument with the essence of the institution.
