'This is probably the most significant contribution to the early modern relationship between science and religion to be published for ten years; it will no doubt be much discussed and leave a permanent mark on our understanding of the issues with which it deals.' Fraser Watts, Expository Times
-Publisher

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.
