Giving some indication of this book's provenance, the latter half of the dedication reads: "The volume contains those parts only of my lectures which refer to recent archæological and historical research in Rome, and which have not appeared in my previous publications." Aside from the dedication, however, there's little indication that these were intended––by Gifford, even if not by Lanciani––to be lectures in natural theology. Chapters include 1) "The New Discoveries in the Forum," 2) "The New Discoveries on the Sacra Via," 3) "The Sacred Grove of the Arvales," 4) The Truth About the Grave of St Paul," 5) "Strange Superstitions in Rome," 6) "Jewish Memorials in Rome," 7) "English Memorials in Rome," and 8) "Scottish Memorials in Rome." An earlier reviewer, writing for The American Historical Review in 1902, concluded: "Under these comprehensive titles, a heterogeneous mass of archæological lore, classical and medieval, is exhibited with much charm of style, but in an unsystematic manner."[ 7.4: 749] I concur, and while the lectures might be interesting for casual perusal, I suspect they'll be of little use for the contemporary natural theologian.
