When Darwin finally published the On the Origin of Species, he tried to avoid controversy by ignoring human origins. Yet evolution was soon being attacked as the godless ‘monkey theory’. 

However, while some condemned Darwin’s book, others found a form of consolation in it, an alternative to an orthodox Christian faith some found hard to maintain. 

As Darwin tried to make sense of the death of his favourite daughter, Annie, many of his readers found unexpected consolation for their own losses in Darwin’s words.
