In this lively and often surprising study, Chapman examines popular misunderstandings about key events in the history of science-faith relations For those interested in science-faith relations, this important study examines popular misunderstandings about key events in history. It covers the major episodes such as Galileo's trial, the Wilberforce-Huxley debate, and the Scopes trial of 1925, but also looks further back through the medieval period to the Classical age, revealing how these events have acquired mythical and misleading statuses. Chapman exposes the facts that have been forgotten and the contemporary opinions that have been supplanted by modern propaganda. Slaying the Dragonsis an important book that strips away layers of misunderstanding and misinterpretation.
Allan Chapman is the author of several books, including Gods in the Sky and England's Leonardo.
