Introductory Letter from Mr. Gladstone 5-8
The progress of the Latin nations less rapid, in consequence not of race but of creed. The Catholics generally less industrious and less prosperous than the Protestants. Causes of this 12-16
The Reformation has given an extraordinary force to the nations who have embraced it 17-18
Catholic nations torn by intestine dissensions which retard their progress 19-22
Education and science the sources of wealth and liberty 23
Knowledge less diffused among Catholic than among Protestant nations 24-25
Morality the basis of order and liberty. Higher morality of Protestant than of Catholic nations 26-27
Religious Protestants the natural allies of Liberty. Religious Catholics the natural allies of Despotism 28
Among Catholic nations the highest motive is the sentiment of Honour; among Protestant nations, Duty or Religious Belief 29-32
Free and Representative government the logical consequence of Protestantism. Absolute government the ideal of Catholicism 35-37page 4
The Protestants in France sought to establish a free representative federal constitution. Liberty perished with them 38-42
Wherever the Calvinists were victorious, they founded free, Republican, and Constitutional government 43-49
A sovereign who is a good Catholic cannot be a good constitutional sovereign 50
The religious sentiment less lively among the well-educated classes in Catholic than in Protestant countries, because Catholicism does not meet the wants of Modern Humanity 51-54
Scepticism and unbelief do not emancipate nations from the dominion of Rome 55-56
In support of liberty, it becomes necessary, in Catholic countries, to resist the priests. Religion and morality are thus sapped, and liberty becomes anarchy 58-62

Letter to the Editor of the 'Times' on the Power of the Romish Church in Belgium 65-71
