If you go backin human history, you come to archaic societies in which the whole set of distinctions we make between the religious, political, economic, social, etc aspects of our society ceases to make sense. In these earlier societies, religion was everywhere, was interwoven with everything else, and in no sense constituted a separate sphere of its own. A Secular Age. Charles Taylor </li> <li> 14. CHRISTENDOMS COSMOS </li> <li> 15. REFORMATION </li> <li> 16. NATURAL SCIENCE </li> <li> 17. The problem isthe separation of God from nature, a split that began in the late medieval and early modern period. This resulted in the (perceived) separation of God from everyday life that is so characteristic of contemporary secular societies. The main carrier of this has been modern natural science. Science came to understand nature as a mechanical system that operated more or less independently from God. God was thus gradually (over centuries) removed from the cosmos. The Sacred Cosmos.
