    1. Good book As a note it s of a history of the church and it s actions throughout the medieval periods to the present instead of the conflict between religion and science However, what it does do is explain the overall suppression of knowledge and how it profited from it which is why and this how the book ties the two together The loss of absolute power it used to have is of the driving cause and why it goes after anything that it views as contrary to both minor and major dogma in the faith I re [...]

    2. Well written and very interesting The author stuck to Judaism, Christianity and Islam over the last 2500 years I would have liked to see religions included, but most American history books are pretty focused on European history.

    3. Martin s reviewI chose 4 stars due to this being written towards the end of the nineteenth century and is slightly prosaic However, the author has put together a very biased view, one that I strongly agree with, that religion especially of the Italian flavour, cannot withstand hard scientific scrutiny Perhaps I do not understand religious faith, being an engineer I trust what can be proved.I would recommend this book to anyone who has an incling that all that is religious is not the absolute tru [...]

    4. This is the popular understanding of Science and Religion I m not sure where he got all the sources, I could not find the sources for his writing But I wouldn t recommend this book if you want to gain new insight If you live in the West, then you have the same thought as this book Rodney Stark presents a different thesis, worth investigating.

    5. A great book in terms of the science, but Draper was a man of his time and was heavily influenced by a strong aversion to Catholicism, characteristic of 19th century anti clericalism His assertion that Catholics worship Mary is as wrong as to assert that Muslims worship Muhammad neither believe they are gods and reserve that act of faith for God alone He was also selective in his choice of examples, he failed to mention that the fathers of most scientific disciplines were themselves believers, a [...]

    6. This is one of those outstanding books that appear from time to time and exert great influence on contemporary thought The amazing thing is that so long after its publication some people still remain Catholics After Pope Pious IX had been exposed by Draper s book one might have expected a mass exodus of adherents The reason this has not happened must be that still not enough people have read it members comments suggest that the book is now hard to obtain It should be kept in print in all major l [...]

    7. Smart excellent The church is about dominance It is about unreason on logic and common sense the opposite of science which is common sense reason logic fair thinking The church during the acquisition was responsible for killing over 30

    8. I have an copy of this that was published in 1876, so I m excited to read it, but I m afraid to touch it It s delicate.

    9. I stumbled across this book two weekends ago in Vermont, I couldn t get the owner to sell it to me If anyone knows readily where a copy is that definitely would not suck
