White started to gather his magnum opus, a quantity paintings first released in 1896 as A heritage of the battle of technological know-how with Theology in Christendom. In correspondence he wrote that he meant the paintings to stake out a place among such non secular orthodoxy as John Henry Newman's on one facet and such secular scoffing as Robert Ingersoll's at the other.
