In the late seventeenth and early eighteenth centuries there was a concern to reconcile Christianity, the traditional humanistic disciplines, and natural philosophy. There are two principal ways in which the reconciliation between religion and natural philosophy was attempted: metaphysics and physico‐theology. The Leibniz/Clarke correspondence encapsulates many of the questions at issue.

Keywords:   Christianity, humanistic disciplines, natural philosophy, metaphysics, physico‐theology, Gottfried Leibniz, Samuel Clarke
