In the Sweat of Thy Brow

Sweat GlandWhile at Canada's Defence Research Board Arthur Custance researched physiological stress under combat operations. He held several patents in the area of applied physiological instrumentation, including the Custance Sudorimeter which permits exceedingly accurate measurement of levels of sweating. He presented numerous classified papers before scientific and military audiences, and his significant research in physiological heat stress resulted in a score of government reports as well as publishing in scientific journals.

Originally published under the title The Meaning of Sweat as Part of the Curse, Sweat of Thy Brow by Arthur Custance finds that Scripture has little 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, most of the paper is occupied with things physiological. Nevertheless, several interesting lines of thought develop in the process with respect to the relationship between man and the animals, and between fear and pain.
