God's Philosophers: How the Medieval World Laid the Foundations of Modern Science
Presents a narrative history that reveals the roots of modern science in the medieval world. This book debunks many of the myths about the Middle Ages, showing that medieval people did not think the earth is flat, nor did Columbus 'prove' that it is a sphere; the Inquisition burnt nobody for their science nor was Copernicus afraid of persecution.
