'Christ and Vegetarianism' by the Rev. & Hon. Canon Edward Lyttelton (1855-1942)
Canon Lyttelton held a unique status within the vegetarian movement as Huntsman of the Eton College beagle pack. The situation became a source of satire and scorn within the pages of Humanitarian League journals although several essays by the clergyman on the ethics of diet were published during the early decades of the twentieth century.
This particular extract appeared in the October 1905 edition of The Vegetarian Messenger and Health Review. The text of his contribution to the Encyclopedia of Religion and Ethics may be read among the historical articles on the CVA UK website.
