The church didn’t persecute science per say . They did not like certain ideas which they viewed would contradict their doctrine. The image of the church as being anti scientific was constructed by the protestant who wanted to further demonize the church. Yes, they did not like Galileo nor Copernicus’ ideas but lets not forget that the church funded many Observatories and experiments.
