Excerpt from Catholic Churchmen in Science: Sketches of the Lives of Catholic Ecclesiastics Who Were Among the Great Founders in Science

There has recently been question of the foun dation of an Institute for the Study of the His tory of Science. 'its realization has, alas Been delayed, as have so many other important intel lectual developments, by the great war which absorbs nearly all energy and attention. I think that very probably the articles contained in this little volume may serve to emphasize how much such an institution is needed. We have been so intent in the past on the history of war and politics that we have sadly neglected the ordered story of man's great constructive achievements. None of these has been more neglected than the history of science, that is, man's thoughtful efforts to penetrate with the human means at his command the meaning of man's life and the uni verse in which he lives.
