9781409444589: Religion, Magic, and the Origins of Science in Early Modern England (Variorum Collected Studies)

In these articles John Henry argues on the one hand for the intimate relationship between religion and early modern attempts to develop new understandings of nature, and on the other hand for the role of occult concepts in early modern natural philosophy. Focussing on the scene in England, the articles provide detailed examinations of the religious motivations behind Roman Catholic efforts to develop a new mechanical philosophy, theories of the soul and immaterial spirits, and theories of active matter. There are also important studies of animism in the beginnings of experimentalism, the role of occult qualities in the mechanical philosophy, and a new account of the decline of magic. As well as general surveys, the collection includes in depth studies of William Gilbert, Sir Kenelm Digby, Henry More, Francis Glisson, Robert Boyle, Robert Hooke, and Isaac Newton.

John Henry is Professor Emeritus and Director of Science Studies Unit, School of Social and Political Science, University of Edinburgh, UK

Review:

'With this collection, Henry offers a surprising and innovative perspective on the intellectual history of early-modern Europe with particular attention to the impact of theology and Christian faith on philosophical and scientific views of natural reality.' Catholic Historical Review 'This work will be of great use to scholars and particularly valuable for postgraduates who are coming to grips with the historiography of early modern chymistry, religion, and magic. I recommend it highly.' Ambix
