In the mindset of many, Christianity and science are two entities that have, historically speaking, always been at war. Much to the surprise of many, no doubt, professional historians rarely-if ever-speak of a historical “warfare” of science and Christianity. In fact in many (and sometimes surprisingly strange) ways, Christianity helped foster science. Not only this, but the large scale claim of a “warfare” of science and Christianity is now typically held up a particularly clear examples of how not to do history – grand categories do the lifting instead of careful and charitable historical organization.
