As contemporary historiography shows, religious ideas -- Christian, Judaic, and Islamic -- motivate much modern scientific effort. This volume explores the question of whether these ideas have shaped the actual content of scientific theories. Reflecting recent scholarship, this collection uncovers the theological facets of modern astronomy in the works of Galileo, Kepler, and Newton, the retention of teleology in the natural philosophy of Boyle, and the theistic and teleological associations of the theory of evolution by Darwin and Wallace.

This volume will interest historians of science, scientists, and anyone intrigued by the manifold construction of the relation between science and religion.
