Bible, Protestantism, and the Rise of Natural Science

Full Product Description

Peter Harrison examines the role played by the Bible in the emergence of natural science. He shows how both the contents of the Bible, and more particularly the way it was interpreted, had a profound influence on conceptions of nature from the third century to the seventeenth. The rise of modern science is linked to the Protestant approach to texts, an approach which spelt an end to the symbolic world of the Middle Ages and established the conditions for the scientific investigation and technological exploitation of nature.

Bible, Protestantism, and the Rise of Natural Science by Peter Harrison was published by Cambridge University Press (Virtual Publishing) in November 2009. The ISBN for Bible, Protestantism, and the Rise of Natural Science is 9780511585524.
