This chapter explores the changes in human perception of the natural world that came about with the rise of modern science from the 16th century onwards, before narrowing its focus to the academic study of the Hebrew scriptures from the late 19th century onwards. It contrasts the marginalization of creation that emerged from early biblical scholars in this period with the alternative, more positive perspectives that began to emerge at the end of the 20th century, including contemporary theological responses to environmental issues such as the development of eco-theology and eco-feminism.

Keywords:   natural world, modern science, Romanticism, creation theology, Hebrew scriptures
