of countries he added notices of the customs and former
history of the people, enlivened by the anecdotes, tra-

geography. His work is highly prizea as an animated,
broadly conceived, and skilfully executed picture of the
world as known to the ancients. lie is rather deficient
in the department of physical geography. Died about
24 A.D.

Strafford, (THOMAS WENTWORTH,) EARL OF, an
English politician, born in London in April, 1593, was

John's College, Cambridge, and married in 1611 a Miss
Clifford, a daughter of the Earl of Cumberland. In
1614 he was elected to Parliament for Yorkshire, which
he also represented in that which met in 1621. His
wife having died in 1622, he married Arabella Hollis, a
daughter of the Earl of Clare. He was appointed sheriff
of Yorkshire in 1625. In the Parliament which met in
1628, he acted with the popular party, and made able
speeches against the arbitrary measures of the court, in
order, perhaps, to give the king a proper idea of the
value of his services. Before the end of the year he
was created a baron, and on the death of the Duke of
Buckingham (1628) he was appointed lord president
of the North, and privy councillor. He was a political
and personal friend of Archbishop Laud. He was am-
bitious, energetic, haughty, and unscrupulous. He de-
clared that he would " lay any man by the heels" who
should appeal from his sentence to the courts at West-
minster. In 1631 or 1632 he was appointed lord deputy
of Ireland, which he governed in a tyrannical manner.
His cruelty to Lord Mountmorris and others excited
great indignation. He directed his highest energies to
the formation of a standing army, and boasted that in
Ireland "the king was as absolute as any prince in the
whole world could be." (Letter to Laud, 1634) He
was created Earl of Strafford in 1639 or 1640.

"He had been," says Macaulay, "one of the most dis-
tinguished members of the opposition, and felt towards
those whom he had deserted that peculiar malignity
which has in all ages been characteristic of apostates.

He perfectly understood the feelings, the resources, and
the policy of the party to which he had lately belonged,
and had formed a vast and deeply-meditated scheme,
which very nearly confounded even the able tactics of
the statesmen by whom the House of Commons had
been directed. To this scheme, in his confidential cor-
respondence, he gave the expressive name of Thorough."
(" History of England," vol. i. p. 25.) His design was
to make the royal power as absolute in England as it
was in Ireland. The revolt of the Scotch, whom the
king foolishly provoked to fight for their re igious rights,
interfered with the success of Strafford's scheme. He
was summoned to London by Charles I. in 1639, and
appointed general-in-chief in 1640; but before he could
join the army it was driven from the border by the
insurgents, and the war was ended by a treaty. The
Long Parliament, which met in November, 1640, im-
peached Strafford of high treason. He was accused of
an attempt "to subvert the fundamental laws of the
country." John Pym was the principal speaker against
him. (See PYM.) The Commons abandoned the im-
peachment and passed a bill of attainder by a large
majority, of whom Falkland was one. He was beheaded
in May, 1641. Two volumes of his " Letters and De-
spatches" have been published.

gen. He produced in 1835 his " Life of Jesus Critically
Treated," in which he attempts to prove that the New
Testament history is substantially a tissue of fables. He
was appointed professor of divinity at Zurich in 1839, but
the hostility of the people to his doctrines was so loudly
expressed that his position there became untenable.
He published several other works, among which are
" The Christian Dogmatics considered in its Historical
Development and its Conflict with Modern Science," (2
vols., 1840-41,) a "New Life of Jesus," (1864,) and "The
Old Faith and the New."

Strauss's idea of a God appears to be similar to that
of many other Hegelians, who regard the Deity not as a
conscious Being, but as an unconscious spirit or influ-
ence, or what might be termed a system of laws, mate-
rial and spiritual. This spirit first becomes conscious
in Humanity, which, according to Strauss and his fol-
lowers, is God manifest in the flesh.

"Thirty years ago," says a writer in the "Quarterly
Review," " ' The Life of Jesus' of Strauss startled the
world like a clap of thunder out of a calm sky. ... In
the name of criticism, he declared that the Gospels were
almost valueless as historical materials ; in the name of
science, he pronounced that miracles were impossible."
(See article on "The Life of our Lord," October, 1866.)
"The supposition that the healthiest, simplest, and
sanest form of religion the world has ever seen should
have taken its rise from such a hotbed of fatuity and
insanity as Strauss would have us believe, appears to
us to make greater demands by far upon our credulity
than the hypothesis it is invented to supersede." (See
" Edinburgh Review," article on " Strauss, Renan, and
'Ecce Homo,'" October, 1866.)

" Strauss declined," says Dorner, in his able work
entitled " History of Protestant Theology," " the rude
method of combating Christianity in the style of the
' Wolfenbiittel Fragments ;' as he likewise covered with
ridicule the naturalistic explanations of the miracles
by Dr. Paulus. To the biblical supernaturalism which
sought to found the truth of Christianity upon inspira-
tion, miracles, and prophecy, he opposed the mythical
theory ; according to whicn, the portrait of Christ in
the Gospels was the product of tradition, of which the
historic element was obscure, determined in its unin-
tentional fabrication by Old Testament images, par-
ticularly the Messianic. Christ, however, to whom the
Messianic predictions were transferred by the common
people, could not have been a supernatural phenomenon,
since a miracle includes an impossibility ; so also the
four Gospels could not have proceeded from apostles or
eye-witnesses, because, with their better knowledge, de-
signed fabrication must be imputed to them. He then
seeks for internal contradictions in the Gospels, in order
thereby to prove their unhistoric character. As, how-
ever, these contradictions do not extend to what is es-
sential, it is clear that they are not what really decided
him. He demands a historical criticism, free from pre-
assumptions,* and yet he makes (as we have seen) for
his mythical theory a twofold pre-assumption, the one
dogmatic,t the other historical. "\ He died February 8,
1874.

ale :" "Foreign Quarterly Review" for October, 1838; "British
Quarterly Review" for February, 1847.

Strauss, (FRIEDRICH ADOLF,) a Protestant minister,
a son of Gerhard Friedrich, noticed below, was born at
Elberfeld in 1817. He published " Sinai and Golgotha :
Travels in the East," (1847,) which has been translated
into several languages. Died April 16, 1888.

\ In rejecting the historical character of the Gospels ; not on
account of the minute discrepancies found in them, but evidently
from a predetermination to make out his mythical theory at whatevef
cost. For if the minute discrepancies, not essentially affecting the
main narrative, destroy the historical character of the Gospels, simi-
lar or greater discrepancies would overthrow ALL history, ancient and
modem. A great historical critic, who will scarcely be accused of
any tendency to credulity, took a very different view of the Gospel
narratives. (See the article on NIEBUHR the historian, in this
work.)
