The relationship between science and the Catholic Church is a widely debated subject. Historically, the Catholic Church has often been a patron of sciences. It has been prolific in the foundation and funding of schools, universities, and hospitals, and many clergy have been active in the sciences. Historians of science such as Pierre Duhem credit medieval Catholic mathematicians and.   The Renaissance and Scientific Revolution were responsible for the introduction of ideas such as a heliocentric solar system and laws of planetary motion.

The Renaissance was a fervent period of European cultural, artistic, political and economic “rebirth” following the Middle Ages. Generally described as taking place from the 14th century to the 17th century, the Renaissance promoted the rediscovery of classical philosophy, literature and art.

Renaissance science has frequently been approached in terms of the progress of the exact sciences of mathematics and astronomy, to the neglect of the broader intellectual context of the period.4/5(4). This monograph is a series of lectures which challenge the dominant narrative of the history of science culminating in the European Renaissance.

The dominant narrative is that Muslim rulers in the early Abbasid period, under the influence of the Mu'tazila theological school (aka rationalists), sponsored a translation of Persian, Indian and Greek scientific and philosophical texts/5.

The Renaissance was the beginning of modern science. Renaissance scientists expanded knowledge about the natural world by making more direct observations. Until the mids, scholars' thinking about the world was based on works of ancient thinkers, such as Ptolemy, and on the Bible.

Professor of Renaissance studies, Jerry Brotton, picks the best books. In mathematics the Renaissance made its greatest contribution to the rise of modern science.

Humanists included arithmetic and geometry in the liberal arts curriculum, artists furthered the geometrization of space in their work on perspective, and Leonardo da Vinci perceived, however faintly, that the world was ruled by “number.”.

Books covered a variety of subject matter in the Renaissance—Latin and Greek classical texts, literature, religion, law, science.

While some books were only text, others included illustrations, too. The text was printed first, and then illustrations were applied by hand or added through another printing.

A few examples are shown below. History >> Renaissance for Kids The Renaissance came about because of a change in the way of thinking. In an effort to learn, people began to want to understand the world around them.
