Chapter Summary

One of the most important factors influencing the reception of all ideas in the cultures of Europe and the Middle East has been the intellectual context of the religions of the book, and within that, of the framework provided by the understanding and interpretation of privileged religious. The interpretation of both Scripture and nature is also embedded in general history because the rise of a new phase in historical awareness in the nineteenth century included the history of religion and its religious books as well as the history of nature. The concern to acknowledge particularity in the natural sciences is legitimate in so far as it is directed against attempts at reduction of an ideological nature. Case studies on the interaction of the books of nature and scripture require individuals with reasonable expertise in the interpretation of both.

Keywords: Europe; natural sciences; privileged religious; Scripture
