The Divine Aspect of History by J. R. Mozley was originally published by Cambridge University Press in 1916. Drawing from the history of Christianity and other world religions, Mozley intended his study to provide reasons for the belief that a spiritual force in life issued from God and that there was some element of the divine inherent in human experience. The work is issued in two volumes. The first volume examines the history of ancient religions and the Old Testament, whilst the second volume considers the life of Christ and the history of Christianity.
