Darwin’s Theory has provoked a wide range of reactions from complete rejection to enthusiastic embrace. While the intensity of opposition from some theologians and religious contemporaries is well known, the extent of support for religion for evolution and natural selection from other clerical and religious contemporaries has not been adequately recognised. Darwin advanced his theory as a form of theistic evolution and the acceptance of his achievement is symbolised by the State Funeral accorded to him in Westminster Abbey.
