Product Overview

More than a century after the idea that science and religion are at odds was dismissed as poppycock, we''re still contending with the concept. Here, in this hundred-year-old work, JAMES J. WALSH (1865-1942) offers us evidence to demolish such nonsense forever: delightful mini-biographies of men who were of both the religious and the scientific persuasion. Meet. . Copernicus . Basil Valentine, the founder of modern chemistry . Linacre: scholar, physician, and priest . Father Kircher: scientist, orientalist, and collector . Bishop Stensen: anatomist and father of geology . Abb Hay: father of crystallography . Abbot Mendel: founder of genetics This replica of the original 1906 edition, complete with the original illustrations, will charm readers of popular science and students of the history of science.
