The interplay between science and religion in the 17th and early 18th centuries is a complicated historical topic which has led to an abundant second literature, characterized by many debates and interpretations. This book is intended to help students find their way and make use of this literature. Topics covered include: historiography; the magic, alchemical, and Prisca traditions; protestantism and the rise of modern science; Christianity, social ideals, ideology and science; social institutions, science and Christianity; religion, technology, architecture and the environment; theology, philosophy, and science; naturaltheology and philosophy; heretical Christianity, deism, and atheism; science, the Bible, and literature; religion and medicine; and Newtonian studies.
