On Dover beach, the Victorian poet Matthew Arnold found an image of the decline of Christianity - the 'melancholy, long, withdrawing roar of the Sea of Faith'. Twenty years later the German philosopher Nietzsche was proclaiming the death of God. Today many people don't know what to believe any more.
In this series of six programmes Don Cupitt , Dean of Emmanuel College,
Cambridge, explores the revolution in ideas that has brought us from the secure world-view of the Middle Ages, to today's crisis of faith.
1: The Mechanical Universe In Galileo's villa at Arcetri, refurnished from the original inventory, Don Cupitt reconstructs the experiments which threatened the entire cosmology of Christendom.
For Galileo it meant the threat of the Inquisition; for the world it meant a mechanical view of the universe that in time found no need for the hypothesis of God.
The most creative response came from Blaise Pascal. Working as a scientist in 17th-century Paris, he came to see the very emptiness of the physical universe as the springboard for a new approach to Christian faith.
