Description

Excerpt from McGill College and Its Medals The developement of the faculties or germs of power in man, and the training of them into harmonious action in obedience to the laws of reason and morality, is what is comprehended in the term education. Yet education not only aims at the developement and culture of the child as an individual, but is also the means by which every rising generation is put in possession of all the attainments of preceding generations. In the earliest ages, the entire education and culture of the people were in the hands of priests, who were the first founders of institutions, the first statesmen, judges, physicians and astronomers, and it is only in the most highly civilized communities that science has been separated from religion, and teaching made a distinct profession. Even in these, learning and schools are often to a greater or less extent, more or less directly, under the patronage and care of religious bodies, since religion has been esteemed by all nations the highest interest of society.
