C for me!

'a coolness of judgment and mutability of purpose ' --> plural

hence 'was' and 'a natural outgrowth' are not accurate.
'it' should refer to religious zeal.

(A), (B), (D) & (E) were eliminated because of the above.

I think that refers to mutability of purpose only..... therefore should be singular.

Thus i choose A. Very cool question....

You've literally put words in my mouth..that's exactly the reason I chose B as well.

In fact both THAT and WHICH seem to refer to the compound COOLNESS OF JUDGMENT AND MUTABILITY OF PURPOSE.

except of course that B still seems incorrect because of singular "outgrowth" whereas plural seems warranted. So by that logic C would be correct.

C
COOLNESS OF JUDGMENT and MUTABILITY OF PURPOSE are OUTGROWTHS of their RELIGIOUS ZEAL
