Charles Darwin's On the Origin of Species, was published in 1859 and it was banned in 1895 for contradicting Christian beliefs. Darwin's critics used religious debates to negate Darwin's hypothesis. They stated that concepts such as natural selection were incompatible with Christianity and did not allow for essential species, while others criticized the work itself. If you are a collector of banned books, this is one you want on your library shelf.
