James Hannam, mannen bak Bede’s Library (som sikkert viser til denne), har no starta ei side om middelaldervitskap -og filosofi; jameshannam.com/. Han prøver å få gitt ut ei bok om korleis middelalderen la grunnlaget for moderne vitskap. Han skriv:
God’s Philosophers tells the unknown story of medieval science. It shows how Copernicus’s sun-centred universe, Kepler’s optics and Galileo’s mechanics all owed their inspiration and much of their detail to medieval antecedents. You will meet fascinating characters and hear their stories, including the tragic love affair of Abelard and Heloise, the burning of the astrologer Cecco D’Ascoli, the family disasters of Jerome Cardan and the trial of Galileo. God’s Philosophers debunks many myths about the Middle Ages. Medieval people did not think the earth was flat, nor did Columbus ‘prove’ that it is a sphere. Everyone already knew. The Inquisition burnt nobody for their science nor was Copernicus afraid of persecution. No Pope tried to ban human dissection or the number zero.
Eg vil anbefale å sjekke dette ut. Dersom blir gitt ut, så trur eg den finn sin plass i bokhylla mi.
