The existing scholarship repeats endlessly a narrative of the "Victorian crisis of faith" and "loss of faith." Such an account is populated with figures who were devout Christians in their youth, but whose reading and intellectual honesty forced them to admit that Christianity was no longer credible.
Ironically, many of these people continue to be well known in Victorian studies as typifying the "crisis" and "loss of faith" by their skepticism, while scholars quietly ignore their later conversions as aberrations that signify nothing.
The Victorian period reminds us that the intellectual pilgrimages of leading skeptics on fearless quests for knowledge, no matter how unsettling the truth might turn out to be, not infrequently include the road to Damascus.
