The end of the 19th century had seen the beginning of the misconception of a war between Science and Religion, and much of the effort of the Church in the 20th century (including papal essays and the development of the Vatican Observatory) was dedicated to countering that idea. The strongest counterargument, of course, was the continued work of Catholics (including those in religious orders) in the field of science. Place of honor for this century, of course, goes to Fr. Georges Lemaire who devised what we now call the Big Bang theory.
