Commemorative Discourse, Delivered in Christ Church, Watertown, Conn;, on the Twenty-First Sunday After Trinity

Excerpt from Commemorative Discourse, Delivered in Christ Church, Watertown, Conn;, On the Twenty-First Sunday After Trinity: October 28th, 1855 Reverence for antiquity is a primal attribute of our nature, and a wise reference to the past is the conservative element in human character. Whether in national or individual, social or religious life, this attribute, implanted in the soul of man by the God, of Nature, exhibits itself in many and various forms. A mysterious awe attaches to what is venerable. Nations, therefore, are proud to refer their existence back to a remote and obscure origin. Hence it is often difficult to distinguish between fabulous and authentic history. The ancient heathen mythology derived its prestige more from the prevalence of this element than from any other circumstance; and it cannot be denied that the famous republics of Greece and Rome owe to it much of their renown. The like sentiment is discoverable in more enlightened times. It permeates all classes of men, and all phases of opinion. In matters of literary taste, for instance, there are works which have come down to us from antiquity, in regard to which the world has given its sentence of approval, and from whose verdict there is no appeal.
