A fascinating journey through a misunderstood time period,
This review is from: God's Philosophers: How the Medieval World Laid the Foundations of Modern Science (Paperback)Hannam is a truly rare breed of scholar: he is both a master of his subject matter and he is
able to express the intricacies of the subject to the readers, educate the laymen with a
writing style that is as informative as it is engaging.
From explaining the significance of the most esoteric philosophies of the era, to shedding light
on figures and personages to which modern science owes a great debt, Hannam does it all with
equal parts panache and academic rigor.
A must have!
