PREFACE TO VOL. V.
Or this volume, as of that which immediately preceded it, the editorial responsiility and general supervision have rested upon Dr. STRONG. He has, however, been reatly aided by Professor WORMAN, who has continued to supplement the departhent left incomplete by the late Dr. MCCLINTOCK. The fulness and accuracy of the work in this respect is very largely due to his earnest and skilful co-operation. Professor SCHEM has likewise rendered important aid, chiefly in national history and staistics. The comprehensive scope and detailed character of the work, as a trustworthy book of reference on all religious topics, has been maintained without change, except such improvements as experience in its progress has suggested. Increased attention has been given to the non-Christian religions and nationalities, as the advance of missionary, scientific, and mercantile exploration has made them more and more the subjects of public notice and interest. The vocabulary, in the branches of philosophy, ethics, and memoirs, will also be found to be somewhat more full, and, we trust, not less satisfactory than heretofore.
The contributions of the numerous assistants and special collaborators are indicated by their initials appended to their respective articles. The following is a complete list of contributors to this volume only.
