A contribution to the history of culture is an important part of the title of this painstakingly researched study, written in 1903 by a Jesuit priest. The cultural trend in late nineteenth-century Europe was one of contempt for religion, and the Catholic Church in particular was seen as ''the epitome of obscurantism. It was in those years that the word 'Kohlerglaube' (stupidly blind faith) became a label regularly applied, in certain circles, to Catholic convictions'' (from the introduction). Kneller's research revealed that, to the contrary, the rapidly developing modern sciences that the Kulturkampf so hailed as the fulfillment of Enlightenment dreams of the end of religion, had many believing scientists in their midst, many among their founders. This study should put an end to the notion that materialism and science are necessary partners.
