About this title

Synopsis:

The interplay between science and religion in the seventeenth and early eighteenth centuries is an extremely complex historical topic which has led to an abundant secondary literature, characterized by many debates and interpretations. This reference source is intended to help students at various levels of expertise find their way and make use of this flood of secondary literature. The book, in the annotations, treats the following topics: Historiography; the Magic, Alchemical, and Prisca Traditions; Protestantism and the Rise of Modern Science; Christianity, Social Ideals, Ideology and Science; Social Institutions, Science and Christianity; Religion, Technology, Architecture and the Environment; Theology, Philosophy, and Science; Natural Theology and Natural Philosophy; Heretical Christianity, Deism, and Atheism; Science, the Bible, and Literature; Religion and Medicine; and Newtonian Studies.

The major part of this book consists of an annotated bibliography of books and articles arranged alphabetically by author. This is followed by unannotated lists of bibliographies and doctoral dissertations. Three indexes are included: topical, relating each work to one or more broad topical categories; an index of persons who wrote or worked in the period under review; and an index of authors and editors of works cited in the bibliography.

Initially designed for students, this guide can be used by non-specialists interested in science and religion.

About the Author:

Richard S. Brooks is Associate Professor of Religious Studies at University of Wisconsin-Whitewater.
David K. Himrod is Assistant Librarian for Reader Services at the United Library, Garrett-Evangelical Theological Seminary in Evanston, IL.
