vanished systems carry us back to a period so remote,
and conceptions so simple, that the philosophy of
the Africa of to-day is an advanced system com-
pared to it.

Much of this work will fall to the lot of the
Christian Church, and on her wisdom, and the pru-
dence and practical sagacity of her agents, the
progress of the native races largely depends. Eth-
nology may not be a suitable study for savage man,
but he who would teach his primitive brother can
have no better mental equipment than a thorough
understanding of the processes by which nations
develop, and the paths that have in the past led to
progress. The Church that first adopts for her
intending missionaries the study of Comparative
Religion as a substitute for subjects now taught, will



234 RELIGION AND MYTH

lead the van in the path of true progress in that
department of Christian work which has in it the
greatest possibiHties for the future of the world. It
will save the missionary years of comparatively use-
less labour in the discovery of facts for himself, and
from the first bring him into touch with the thought
of savage men.
