There also was a book written by Conrad of Megenberg in the 14th century with the original German title of "Buch der Natur". Early theologians [who?] believed the Book of Nature was a source of God's revelation to mankind.

The relationship between the theological and the sciences have grown increasingly distant and as such it is quite arguable that natural theology has necessarily been restricted to increasingly philosophical and theological discussion and debate around the presence (or lack) of revelation.
