Religion and the Natural Sciences in Early Modern Scandinavia

Project: Research

Layman's description

Where do we draw the line between belief and knowledge in a religious culture? It is a common misconception that modern science was born in the 17th century, when scholars such as Galileo and Newton allegedly contested the church and tried to gain a secular understanding of the world. In reality, however, Europe was a religious culture, and science was primarily motivated by religious conceptions.
