Event description

Description

The Scientific Revolution is associated with a period of 150 years in the 16th – 17th centuries in Europe. The discoveries of Nicolaus Copernicus, Galileo, and Isaac Newton launched an unprecedented growth in the understanding of the mathematics of nature.

Prior to that time, Christian scholars effectively rejected the ancient concept of an eternal cosmos and defended the truth of Divine Revelation, particularly the Holy Trinity and the Incarnation of Christ. This presentation will tell the story of how science was born of Christian faith.


Doors open at 6:30 pm, reception follows lecture. All are welcome.
