With contributions from Dr Allan Chapman, (Oxford University), author of 'Slaying the Dragons: destroying myths in the history of science and faith' and 'Stargazers: Copernicus, Galileo, the Telescope and the Church,' and from James Hannam, author of 'God's Philosophers: how the Medieval World Laid the Foundations of Modern Science.'
