Excerpt from A History of Magic and Experimental Science, During the First Thirteen Centuries of Our Era, Vol. 2 Hugh's attitude to history is interesting to note in pass ing. In his classification of the sciences he does not assign it a distinct place as he does to economics and politics, but he shows his inchoate sense of the importance of the histpry of science and of thought by attempting a list of the found ers Of the various arts and sciences.1 In this connection he adopts the theory of the origin of the Etruscans at present in favor with scholars, that they came from Lydia. He regards the study of Biblical or sacred history as the first essential for a theologian, who should learn history from beginning to end before he proceeds to doctrine and alle gory.2 Four essential points to note in studying history in Hugh's opinion are the person, the event, the time, and the place.
