In an accurate historical treatment, it is impossible to pinpoint a definition of science that applies to multiple moments in time. Science is a living, organic activity, and the meaning and understanding of science has evolved incrementally over several centuries. This book, the second in a series of broadly focused and comprehensive histories of science, explores the evolution of science from the advents of Christianity and Islam to the Middle Ages, focusing especially on the historical relationship between science and religion. Specific topics include: technological innovations during the Middle Ages; Islamic science; the Crusades; Gothic cathedrals; and the founding of Western universities. Individuals described include Paul the Apostle, Hippolytus, Lactantius, Cyril of Alexandria, Hypatia, Gregor Mendel, Cosmas Indicopleustes, and the Prophet Mohammed.
