9781451012965: History of the Conflict Between Religion and Science: By John William Draper, Vol. 12 (Classic Reprint)

Whoever has liad an opportunity of becoming acquainted with the mental condition of the intelligent classes in Europe and A merica, must have perceived that there is a great and rapidly-increasing departure from the public religious faith, and that, while among the more frank this divergence is not concealed, there is a far more extensive and far more dangerous secession, private and unacknowledged. So wide-spread and so powerful is this secession, that it can neither be treated with contempt nor with punishment. It cannot be extinguished by derision, by vituperation, or by force. The time is rapidly approaching when it will give rise to serious political results. Ecclesiastical spirit no longer inspires the poH cy of the world. Military fervor in behalf of faith has disappeared. I ts only souvenirs are the marble effigies of crusading knights, reposing in the silent crypts of churches on their tombs. That a crisis is impending is shown by the attitude of the great powers toward the papacy.

Book Description:

This early example of historical evidencing of the conflict thesis argues that the history of Christianity, especially Roman Catholicism, demonstrates repeated examples of the stifling of scientific development. It is now seen as one of the central texts of this school of thought.

From the Back Cover:

In 1874, John William Draper foresaw the grand political conflict between religion and science that has afflicted American culture since the early 20th century--he deemed it an extension of the battle the Catholic Church has been fighting against logic and reason since its inception.

In this incendiary work, which retains all of its passion and power today, Draper posits that the history of science cannot be appreciated except in relation to its war for legitimacy in the eyes of the Church, and he gives us a lucid and fascinating history of the discipline alongside the Church's ongoing grab for imperial power.

This is an intriguing portrait of an "intellectual night" that fell in ancient times and is only breaking into an enlightened new dawn today.
