The course then considers science during the Middle Ages, examining the transmissions of ancient science and its incorporation into the body of Christian doctrines. The course concludes with the new efforts of physicians and astronomers to free their studies from the influence of the Church and antiquity, and the new accommodations between science and society during the Scientific Revolution.
