"The Soul of the Centuries." a new
sertea of dissertations dealing with his
tory's relation to religion, is the subject
which Rabbi Frederick Cohn has selected
for a year's study.
In the first of these lectures entitled
The Fifteenth Century; the New
World." delivered last night, Rabbi
Cohn sal3"
"I puiposo to exomlne each century
with a view to ascertaining Its essential
yplrit or soul.'
In our study of the centuries we shall
begin with the fifteenth century, for all
the centurlos that went before were in
h manner but the preparation for this
wonderful century; this century, itself
the beginning of a great era of human
history. It Is the transition century that
marks the definite division ot the new
Irom the old. the distinct separation of
past views of life from the dominant con
ceptions of the world in which we live."
Rabbi Cohn said that aa the discovery
of America, marked the discovery of a
new world, so that same year and cen
tury marked the beginning of a new
world, morally, religiously, intellectually,
politically and socially.
with ' the fifteenth century the
medieval era comes definitely to an end I
and humanity enters positively and
confidently upon the moaorn period, the (
period in which we live, which is so alive !
and thrilling and so lnatinct with hope J
and promise for the days that are to be.
New Methods Adopted.
"What was the soul ot th fifteenth
century? It was the soul of the break
up of the old and the dawning of the
new: It wai the eoul of invention and
discovery; of mankind entering upon j
new paths and making trial of new j
methods. For one thing it was the awak- I
tnlng of tha soul after the long, ten
centurted aloep of the mldJla ages. The
human Intellect and the whole mental
life of man wcro reborn.
"Tha fifteenth century was the century
of the renaissance which, taking Its rise
in beautiful, cultured, artistic and
fascinating Italy, spread thence to all
Europe and ultimately to all tha world.
The fifteenth century witnessed the so
called 'revival of learning;' the resur
rection of art and culture, the resur
rection of reason, the general stimulation
and kindling of all the Intellectual facul
ties, due to renewed acquaintance with
the ancient and classical literatures ot
Greece and Rome, made possible by the
discovery of ancient manuscript, and Im
mensely furthered by tha newly-dts-

the very year when Constantinople fell
(1453) sending forth hosts ot ' Greek
scholars to occupy professional chairs in
the newly-rising universities and to ex
plain the old masters In the' new spirit
and In accordance with the newljr -acquired
"Scholasticism . gave way to . modern
eclentifio- knowledge. With the rebirth
ot reason '.vas ajready planted the seeds
that were to arouse and quicken the
" conscience; and Renaselance was Instinct
with Reformation that was to characterize
the succeeding century and with revolu
tion In England and in France that was
to be the dominant fact in the subsequent
seventeenth and eighteenth centuries.
New Idea Still Retained.
' 'In, that springtime of the human
ep!rit the life was germinating that was
to come to blossom in the succeeding
centuries and that fills with beauty and
fragrance and expanding power the ,
activities and forces of the day in which
we live. The nineteenth and the twen- i
tleth centuries are no less unoer the j
bpell and spirit ot the Renaissance than
were their predecessors; and th? new age
inarches on to the music awakened out
of the marvellous melodies of the past, .
and particularly out ot the matchless
achievements ot that century that Is
rightly regarded aa leading the van in
humanity's all-conquering progress
toward tho goal of civilisation and ot life.
"For the lesson of the centuries ia tho
lesson of progress. As a great Binger has
expressed It: "Yet I doubt not thro' the
ages one increasing purpose runs and the
thoughts ot men are widened In the pro
ven of the suns.' I
"And of hope; for I believe we shall not j
conclude these lectures without feeling,
with Senator Hoar, that today Is better
than yesterday, and tomorrow will be
belter than today.' "
