More than a century after the idea that science and religion are at odds was dismissed as poppycock, we're still contending with the concept. Here, in this hundred-year-old work, JAMES J. WALSH (1865-1942) offers us evidence to demolish such nonsense forever: delightful mini-biographies of men who were of both the religious and the scientific persuasion.
. Basil Valentine, the founder of modern chemistry
. Linacre: scholar, physician, and priest
. Father Kircher: scientist, orientalist, and collector
. Bishop Stensen: anatomist and father of geology
. Abbé Haüy: father of crystallography
. Abbot Mendel: founder of genetics
