U of Calgary: International Society for Science & Religion Library Project

University of Calgary course on the History of Magic, Science, and Religion This course embarks on an historical study of the development of and relationships among three worldviews by which Europeans have sought to understand the universe and human nature. Starting from late antiquity, the course will include the following topics: early Christianity and the natural world, the development of witchcraft, Christian responses to Greek science and philosophy, Hermetic magic in the Renaissance, and the Trial of Galileo.

Science and Religion in the Seventeenth Century. The aim of this course is to examine the varieties of ways in which science and religion interacted during the seventeenth century in Europe. Broad questions to be considered include: the relationship between science and scripture; doctrines of creation and providence and how they relate to the study of nature; the limits of mechanization; and divine activity in the natural world.
