OK. I thought one could point out that science and mathematics do not belong to the religious realm because they are rooted in reason and the evidence of the senses, not faith.

I highly recommend "The Aristotle Adventure: A Guide to the Greek, Arabic, & Latin Scholars Who Transmitted Aristotle's Logic to the Renaissance" --

I also think the history of the Diophantine equations is fascinating, all the way to their rediscovery during the Renaissance, and the impact this had on the modern development of analysis, symbolic notation, geometry, and complex numbers. It took more than one thousand years to go from Diophantus to suddenly Bachet, Fermat, and Descartes.
