I am asking for a lists of people whos claims were persecuted, not a discussion

Answer by R g
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.

Christian Science Publishing Society Introduces “my Bible Lesson”

Boston, MA (PRWEB) November 18, 2006

The Christian Science Publishing Society has launched a new Bible study product designed to support teens and young adults in their spiritual exploration.

“my Bible Lesson” includes Bible timelines, word definitions and verses from multiple Bible translations, as well as explanatory notes from Bible scholars about key events, people and customs. Selected passages from the King James Bible and “Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures” by Mary Baker Eddy highlight the study theme for each week.

The latest addition to the Christian Science Quarterly line of publications, which includes the Weekly Bible Lesson in print, audio CD and online multimedia formats, “my Bible Lesson” is accessible online as a downloadable PDF.

“‘my Bible Lesson’ is about making the ideas from the Bible Lesson practical,” notes the Board of Trustees of The Christian Science Publishing Society.

Chuck Howes, managing publisher of the Publishing Society, adds, “The lively design includes photos taken around the world by young students of the Bible, and adds insightful, scholar-based commentary in a way that’s relevant and refreshing to a youthful audience.”

Currently accessible for free during its introductory period, “my Bible Lesson” will be available by subscription, both for personal study and as a gift, beginning early 2007.
