This is a very enjoyable, content-rich, and interesting lecture series, but know what you are getting. The title of the series should have been something different than the misleadingly general title of "Science and Religion." The series is about science and religion, but it is not the kind of series that deals with the incendiary topic of "science versus religion." In fact, this series is the opposite of that: it traces (very briefly for 12 lectures to handle) the history of the relationship between science and religion. What the series shows is that religion and science have not been at odds historically, and, in reality, both have been entangle with one another because they were seeking truth. However, the two have not been at odds with one another, but the tension existed between camps within science, and, on each occasion, religious (and non-religious) individuals found themselves on both sides of any given debate. It should also be noted that this series only deals with Western science and religion.

The biggest benefit of this lecture series is its dual lecture treatment of Galileo's run-in with the Church. Principe masterfully puts to rights the history that is so often misunderstood by popularizers of the affair. Principe uses letters between Bellarmine and Galileo, as well as coherent accounts of the interactions between Pope Urban VIII, to put into perspective what really happen --that is, to within a certain degree of error, as there are many aspects of the affair that are debated. By and large, Principe elucidates the issue, eliminating whatever myths so freely float around in popular culture.

While I did thoroughly enjoy Lawrence Principe's presentation, there are a number of qualifications I need to add.

Don't bother with this DVD cause it is really boring. Can't really call it multimedia presentation since the lecturer just stands in front of a podium. Too much time spent defining terms. Got it to use in a class but switched to a much better DVD by Francis Collins who was the Director of the Genome Project called Religion and Science. The Collins DVD is really well done with over 9 different interviews and truly multimedia presentation. Our class really enjoyed the Collins DVD.

I hope amazon gets it back in stock http://www.amazon.com/Religion-Science-Pathways-Truth-course/dp/B004N9E0U0/ref=sr_1_1?s=books&ie=UTF8&qid=1356558035&sr=1-1&keywords=francis+collins+religion+and+science+dvd
