Product Overview

This book explores the impact of biblical reading practices on scientific thought in the sixteenth and seventeenth centuries. Looking beyond the canonical figures of science and exploring the full European stage, the collection addresses the presuption that natural philosophers forged their new sciences despite rather than because of the pervasive bible-centeredness of early modern thought. The essays engage iwth long-running debates ofer religion and science, and the supposition that scriptural exegesis was a hindrance rather than a catalyst to science.
