This accessible and enlightening book by Professor Michael J. Crowe of the University of Notre Dame (USA) recreates one of the most dramatic developments in the history of thought: the change from an earth-centered to a sun-centered conception of the solar system. click here to continue
The Faith and Science pages (F&S) are a unique resource on the web. The material in F&S is stuff that you will find nowhere else (or at least not without a lot of digging). Featured areas on F&S include “History of Church and Science”; “Church and Science Today”; “Science and Scripture”; “Science, Religion & Society”; “Life in the Universe”; “Cosmology”; and more. The level of the F&S material ranges from being accessible to all audiences, with even some material oriented toward young readers, up to material for university specialists.
The F&S pages, like this blog, are made possible by the Vatican Observatory Foundation (the Vatican Observatory’s US operation that operates the Vatican Advanced Technology Telescope, or VATT, in Arizona). Click here to support the F&S pages, this blog, and the operation of the VATT.
