The Secret History of Science and Religion: Rumours of War

Nick Spencer explores the history of the relationship between science and religion and questions the received wisdom that they have always been in conflict with one another. He tells the story of science and religion not as if they were big, abstract ideas but as it happened, through the lives and cultures of different people and different times. From Newton to Darwin via Voltaire and Descartes he examines the fault lines during times of social and political upheaval in the 18th and 19th centuries.
