Active 3 months ago. Viewed 2k times. Are you referring to Amir Alexander's novel? If so, see the post Are infinitesimals Dangerous? Otherwise every one who reads this question has to click around on links and read multiple answers to try to figure out what you mean by a ban, and whether there really was one. Gerald Edgar Gerald Edgar 4, 1 1 gold badge 8 8 silver badges 19 19 bronze badges. The ban was on indivisibles , not on infinitesimals. The latter are not indivisible and compatible with Aristotle's and the Church's idea of continuum. I will rearrange my answer.

Your question here, and all the discussion, would be more correct if it used the therm "indivisibles".

A review of "Jesuit Science and the Republic of Letters." by Mordechai Feingold ed.

Any mathematical theory of infinitesimals occurred after , so of course infinitesimals were not banned in Then why did Alexander use "Infinitesimals" as the title of his book? You will have to see the book to find out. The other answer was already about "indivisibles".

SE answers talk about the link to atomism and perceived contradiction to transubstantiation. Is that wrong? No wonder a consensus emerged that little reason existed for historians to take Jesuit science seriously. Only during the past two decades have scholars begun to question this received view of the Jesuit role in the Scientific Revolution, and this book contributes significantly to that reassessment.

Focusing on the institutional setting of Jesuit science, the contributors take a new and broader look at the overall intellectual environment of the Collegio Romano and other Jesuit colleges to see how Jesuit scholars taught and worked, to examine the context of the Jesuit response to the new philosophies, and to chart the Jesuits' scientific contributions. Their conclusions indicate that Jesuit practitioners were indeed instrumental in elevating the status of mathematics and in stressing the importance of experimental science; yet, at the same time, the Jesuits were members of a religious order with a clearly defined apostolic mission.

Understanding both the contributions of Jesuit practitioners and the constraints under which they worked helps us to gain a clearer and more complete perspective on the emergence of the scientific worldview.
