The Jesuit and the Skull


In The Jesuit and the Skull: Teilhard de Chardin, Evolution, and the Search for Peking Man, the author provides a concise history of human evolution, and an intriguing personal history of French Jesuit priest and scientist Pierre Teilhard de Chardin, who had been exiled to China by the Vatican for writings that asserted humanity's evolutionary relationship to apes and challenged the doctrine of original sin.

Teilhard's involvement in the discovery of fossils of what would be known as Peking Man makes demonstrates his convictions that science and religion were connected and seeking similar aims for humanity.
