Eugene M. Klaaren

Eugene Marion Klaaren (1937-October 17, 2015) was a historian and professor of religion. He held a BA from Hope College, an MA from Emory University, a BD from Western Theological Seminary, and a PHD from Harvard University. He then became an Emeritus Professor of Wesleyan University. His book Religious Origins of Modern Science: Belief in Creation in Seventeenth-Century Thought (Eerdmans, 1977) remains "an important one. It is written in a scholarly and fairly dense style but is also accessible to non-specialists."[1] His Religious Origins book is based on his PhD thesis: "Belief in creation and the rise of modern science a study in the representative natural philosophy and theology of Robert Boyle and other seventeenth century figures" (1970).[2] Klaaren died in 2015.
