Summary
Albertson uncovers the lost history of Christianity's encounters with Pythagorean religious ideas before the Renaissance. The writings of Thierry of Chartres (d. 1157) and Nicholas of Cusa (d. 1464) represent a robust Christian Neopythagoreanism that reconceived the Trinity and the Incarnation within the framework of Greek number theory. These two examples of mathematical theologies challenge contemporary assumptions about the relation of religion and modern science and about the nature of modernity itself
