Excerpt of Faith and Reason through Christian History

Excerpt of Faith and Reason through Christian History

The figure of Gal­ileo, whispering his conviction of heliocentrism in a theocratic Italian court, represents in the minds of many modern people their image of an intrinsic conflict between faith and science, dogma and free enquiry, medieval justice and modern values. As numerous scholars have shown, however, the Galileo trial was largely an anomaly in the history of Catholicism. In the early modern period, it was far more common for religious institutions, especially the Catholic Church, to embrace with zeal the latest scientific discoveries, which by and large confirmed their worldview.

Book Backstory with James Jacobs

I majored in philosophy as an undergraduate, and had done two years of theology at a seminary, and so—on paper—I appeared well prepared to teach this class.
