Science and religion, 400 B.C. to A.D. 1550 : from Aristotle to Copernicus by Edward Grant( Book )
17 editions published between 2004 and 2012 in English and held by 731 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"Many people believe that during the Middle Ages Christianity was actively hostile toward science - then known as natural philosophy - and impeded its progress. This comprehensive survey of science and religion during the period between the lives of Aristotle and Copernicus demonstrates that medieval theologians were not hostile to learning natural philosophy, but embraced it. Had they had not done so, the Scientific Revolution would not - and could not - have occurred. Students and lay readers will learn how the roots of much of the scientific culture of today originated with the religious thinkers of the Middle Ages. Science and Religion, 400 B.C.-A.D. 1550 thoroughly covers the relationship between science and religion in the medieval period, and provides many resources for the student or lay reader."--BOOK JACKET

21 editions published between 1994 and 2009 in English and Italian and held by 657 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Medieval cosmology was a fusion of pagan Greek ideas and biblical descriptions of the world, especially the creation account in Genesis. Because cosmology was based on discussions of the relevant works of Aristotle, primary responsibility for its study fell to scholastic theologians and natural philosophers in the universities of western Europe from the thirteenth to the seventeenth century. The present work describes the extraordinary range of themes, ideas, and arguments that constituted scholastic cosmology for approximately five hundred years from around 1200 to 1700. Primary emphasis is placed on the world as a whole, what might lie beyond it, and the celestial region, which extended from the Moon to the outermost convex surface of the cosmos. During the late Middle Ages (ca. 1200-1500), Aristotelian cosmology met little opposition or challenge. By the time rival interpretations appeared in the sixteenth century - for example, Platonism, atomism, Stoicism, Neoplatonism, Hermeticism, and especially Copernicanism - Aristotelian cosmology was firmly entrenched. By the seventeenth century, however, Copernican heliocentric cosmology and the geoheliocentric variant of it, proposed by Tycho Brahe, offered significant alternatives and thereby challenged medieval Aristotelian cosmology as never before. How scholastic natural philosophers of the sixteenth and seventeenth centuries responded to the new interpretations is an important aspect of this study
