Draper, John W.: History of the Conflict Between Religion & Science. 22 April 2008

John William Draper's 1878 examination of the historical conflict between religion and science. This is not light reading. Draper is solidly in the middle of the Victorian Age. To help understand the breath of the book, I have included below the Table of Contents.
  • CHAPTER I. The origin of science.
  • CHAPTER II. The origin of Christianity. — Its transformation on attaining imperial power. — Its relations to science.
  • CHAPTER III. Conflict respecting the doctrine of the unity of god. — The first or southern reformation.
  • CHAPTER IV. The restoration of science in the south.
  • CHAPTER V. Conflict respecting the nature of the soul. — Doctrine of emanation and absorption.
  • CHAPTER VI. Conflict respecting the nature of the world.
  • CHAPTER VII. Controversy respecting the age of the earth.
  • CHAPTER VIII. Conflict respecting the criterion of truth.
  • CHAPTER IX. Controversy respecting the government of the universe.
  • CHAPTER X. Latin Christianity in relation to modern civilization.
  • CHAPTER XI. Science in relation to modern civilization.
  • CHAPTER XII. The impending crisis. Indications of the approach of a religious crisis. — The predominating Christian Church, the Roman, perceives this, and makes preparation for it. — Pius IX convokes an Oecumenical Council — Relations of the different European governments to the papacy. — Relations of the Church to Science, as indicated by the Encyclical Letter and the Syllabus.

Very interesting. I'm going to put this on the Reader at once.

Just one thing: it was published in 1878. (Draper's dates are 1811-1882). Best to clear this up before people start worrying about copyright.

Thanks for the catch. It was a slip of the fingers. For 1978 to be near the middle of the Victorian Age would mean that we are still in it. (Although in some ways we still are.)

vivaldrules also caught it and sent me a PM about it.
