John Tyndall(1820–1893) was Michael Faraday's successor at the Royal Institute. In comparison to Faraday, his contributions were by and large irrelevant to either actual science in general or physics in particular. Where Faraday was devout Christian and an elder within his church, Tyndall was an anti-Catholic, even somewhat fanatical, who campaigned tirelessly for liberation of science from ecclesiastical, or Church, influences. Many professors who hold to non-religious views are in fact his mondern day counterparts.
