Art. I. Fanaticism. By the Author of " Natural History of Enthusiasm." 8vo. pp. 515. London, 1833.

'E have so long delayed our notice of this volume, that another portion of the series embraced by the Author's original plan is already advertised as forthcoming, under the title of " Spiritual Despotism." More than twelve years ago, the Preface to the volume before us states, the Author projected a work which should at one view exhibit the several principal forms of spurious or corrupted religion. The "Natural History of Enthusiasm" was put forth as a sort of experiment and sample. Emboldened to proceed, he almost immediately entered upon the closely connected subject here treated of; and, as he extended his ' researches concerning the rise and progress of the fatal errors 'that have obscured our holy religion,' his wish to achieve his purpose was strengthened, as his plan assumed a more definite shape, and the field opened before him. "Fanaticism" was to have been followed by " Superstition." For some reason or other, this is postponed to "Spiritual Despotism," the subject of the next volume; and " Corruption of Morals" and "Scepticism" are announced as the title of two succeeding ones, which will be required to complete the projected series.
