Publisher's Summary

If you were taught that the Middle Ages were a time of intellectual stagnation, superstition, and ignorance, you were taught a myth that has been utterly refuted by modern scholarship.

As a physicist and historian of science James Hannam shows in his brilliant new book, The Genesis of Science: How the Christian Middle Ages Launched the Scientific Revolution, without the scholarship of the "barbaric" Middle Ages, modern science simply would not exist.

The Middle Ages were a time of one intellectual triumph after another. As Dr. Hannam writes, "The people of medieval Europe invented spectacles, the mechanical clock, the windmill, and the blast furnace by themselves. Lenses and cameras, almost all kinds of machinery, and the industrial revolution itself all owe their origins to the forgotten inventors of the Middle Ages."

Provocative, engaging, and a terrific read, James Hannam's The Genesis of Science will change the way you think about our past - and our future.

    "Insightful!"

    The "Genesis of Science" is a marvelous journey into the distant past of the "Dark Ages" that uncovers the birth of of the disciplinary fields of science. It is a wonderfully written book that reveals the process by which the fore-fathers of science studied creation with the understanding of it being created by a Creator. Dig in and enjoy the journey!

    "Excellent book!"

    I learned so much about science and the development of the Western World, in addition to many things about ancient Greece & the Middle-East.
