The Genesis of Science

The Genesis of Science

How the Christian Middle Ages Launched the Scientific Revolution

by James Hannam

The Not-So-Dark Dark Ages

What they forgot to teach you in school:
People in the Middle Ages did not think the world was flat
The Inquisition never executed anyone because of their scientific ideologies
It was medieval scientific discoveries, including various methods, that made possible Western civilization’s “Scientific Revolution”

As a physicist and historian of science James Hannam debunks myths of the Middle Ages in his brilliant book The Genesis of Science: How the Christian Middle Ages Launched the Scientific Revolution. Without the medieval scholars, there would be no modern science.

Discover the Dark Ages and their inventions, research methods, and what conclusions they actually made about the shape of the world.
