INTRODUCTION

     SCRIPTURE HAS very little indeed to say about sweating, but what it does say is remarkably significant. This significance is only apparent when one has learned something about the intricacies of the sweating mechanisms physiologically considered.
     Hence a very large part of this paper is occupied with things physiological. But several interesting lines of thought develop in the process with respect to the relationship between man and the animals, and between fear and pain.
     By reason of its consideration of other forms of sweating than that elicited by heat, such as emotional and mental sweating, this paper may serve an incidental purpose, namely, to introduce any reader unacquainted with the subject to the possibilities of research from a number of different points of view both physiological and psychological.
     A guide to the literature is found at the end.
