This chapter examines the works of Anglican clergymen considered as popularizers of science in Victorian England. These include Charles Alexander Johns, Francis Orpen Morris, Thomas W. Webb, Ebenezer Cobham Brewer, and Charles Kingsley. The chapter suggests that, through their work, the Church of England maintained an active presence in the British scientific world, and that they kept the relevance of religious themes to contemporary science before the minds of the public, even after the appearance of Charles Darwin's Origin of Species.
