The Pope and Science from the Medieval Period to the Present. A popular myth put about by secularists is that between the Church and science the relationship has been, and continues to be, a stormy one. Nothing could in fact be further from the truth. An analysis of historical data shows that modern science developed in the Medieval period against a background of Christian faith in the creation. Pope Sylvester II was a brilliant mathematician whose discoveries led to the number system we use today. Pope Innocent III founded a hospital in Rome which was the basis for the modern city hospital system world-wide. The civil calendar in use today owes its existence to Pope Gregory XIII. The Pontifical Academy of Sciences and the Vatican Observatory are both highly respected institutions which continue to contribute to scientific progress.

Paul Haffner also shows how four modern Popes have contributed in a special way to the dialogue between faith and science.
