Christianity & the Rise of Science

Christianity & the Rise of Science -- a super UK website on this subject, e.g., on the role of Galileo, religion, & the Inquisition.  The evidence has been known for many decades, but our "dedicated" secular media has not wanted us to know the truth.  Truth will out.  See also the Science Library

There are several lectures and articles on line about this subject.  These include Christianity: A Cause of Modern Science? by Eric Snow (unfortunately hosted by a creationist site) and Christianity and the Birth of Science by Michael Bumbulis.  Chapter two of Rodney Stark's For the Glory of God covers the same ground and also argues Christianity was a cause of modern science.  Stark has unimpeachable academic qualifications and found many of his views elsewhere in the literature.

For general background, Edward Grant's The Foundations of Modern Science in the Middle Ages is a short and very useful survey of medieval science and how it laid some important foundations. It is interesting that Grant has moved to a much more positive view of early science than that found in his previous book Physical Science in the Middle Ages.

A fatter book that covers ancient and Arab science as well is David Lindberg's The Beginnings of Western Science that has very rapidly become the standard work of introduction in the field. You find it at the top of the list of recommended reading on every undergraduate course. He has also helped write a journal article debunking Andrew Dickson White's The Warfare of Science and Theology which I follow up here.
