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.

    " A comprehensive survey that covers a lot of ground but doesn't have the space to go in depth. Debunks many myths and "urban legends" of the history of science and math. Useful bibliography at the end. "

    " Written from a historical stance, this book lays out how Christianity has influence, and even given birth to modern science. "

    " Too many stories. It does get its point across though. "

    " It was alright. It felt more like an encyclopedia containing short character studies. "
