520    During the Victorian period, the practice of science 
       shifted from a religious context to a naturalistic one. It
       is generally assumed that this shift occurred because 
       naturalistic science was distinct from and superior to 
       theistic science. As Huxley's Church and Maxwell's Demon 
       reveals, however, most of the methodological values 
       underlying scientific practice were virtually identical 
       for the theists and the naturalists: each agreed on the 
       importance of the uniformity of natural laws, the use of 
       hypothesis and theory, the moral value of science, and 
       intellectual freedom. But if scientific naturalism did not
       rise to dominance because of its methodological 
       superiority, then how did it triumph? Matthew Stanley 
       explores the overlap and shift between theistic and 
       naturalistic science through a parallel study of two major
       scientific figures: James Clerk Maxwell, a devout 
       Christian physicist, and Thomas Henry Huxley, the 
       iconoclast biologist who coined the word agnostic. Both 
       were deeply engaged in the methodological, institutional, 
       and political issues that were crucial to the theistic-
       naturalistic transformation. What Stanley's analysis of 
       these figures reveals is that the scientific naturalists 
       executed a number of strategies over a generation to gain 
       control of the institutions of scientific education and to
       reimagine the history of their discipline. Rather than a 
       sudden revolution, the similarity between theistic and 
       naturalistic science allowed for a relatively smooth 
       transition in practice from the old guard to the new.
