Martineau and Cobbe put forward theories of progress which I classify as versions of teleological progressivism. Their theories are bound up with their accounts of different world civilizations and religions, and their advancement towards either Christianity, for Cobbe, or through and beyond Christianity towards secularization, for Martineau. After explaining the overall nature of teleological progressivism in the Victorian era and locating Cobbe and Martineau within this intellectual context (Section 1), I turn to the details of Martineau{\textquoteright}s version of teleological progressivism (Section 2), then Cobbe{\textquoteright}s initial version (Section 3) followed by her second, revised version (Section 4). I then draw out some conclusions about the shared structure of Martineau{\textquoteright}s and Cobbe{\textquoteright}s forms of teleological progressivism and its complicated connections with Eurocentrism and colonialism (Section 5).",
