Are science and faith, particularly Christianity, inevitably in conflict, as the New Atheists proclaim?

Have they not always been so? Weren't early scientists hounded for their discoveries until Darwin burst on the scene and sent faith packing?

Not if you look at the facts, says Dr Allan Chapman, who teaches the History of Science at the University of Oxford.

History shows us that Galileo was not the victim of Church persecution - nor did Huxley "win" the debate with Wilberforce.

Drawing on contemporary sources, Dr Chapman proves that the history of science and of faith always have been closely intertwined.

From the leading scientists of medieval times, many in Holy Orders, to the seventeenth-century Popes who maintained an astronomical observatory in the Vatican, to the Christian people of science today, science and faith have grown up together.
