History of the Warfare of Science with Theology Christendom 1897
A HISTORY OF THE WARFARE OF SCIENCE WITH THEOLOGY IN CHRISTENDOM (Vol. II. ONLY). By Andrew Dickson White, Published by D. Appleton and Co., 1897.
Christendom historically refers to the "Christian world"
In this important work, which spawned a great deal of controversy at its appearance, White exhaustively documents the battle between science and religion in matters of creation versus evolution, the geocentric versus the heliocentric universe, and the "fall of man" versus anthropology.
The struggle of science over outmoded medieval concepts is still emerging. Even a century after its publication, White's great work has much to teach us about the dangerous effects of religious doctrinalism on education and moral growth.Half brown leather with gilt spine title & marbled boards.
