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.
