In his latest book review, D. Gareth Jones offers an in-depth analysis of Nicholas Spencer’s book Magisteria: The Entangled Histories of Science and Religion, complementing the review essay by ISCAST fellow James C. Ungureanu in the 2023 volume of CPOSAT.

Jones commends Spencer’s tour de force exploration of the intricate and often misunderstood relationship between science and religion throughout history. Through a detailed analysis of key figures, events, and controversies, he illustrates how Spencer untangles the complex currents at the intersection of science and religion, shedding light on the subtleties that defy neat categorisations.
