Query re Fictions of Revealed Science

Sun Feb 6, 2005

My logs tell me that the readers of this site comprise five people and fifty robots, so I figured I’d call upon their vast store of knowledge to ask the following question: what novels (or other) can you think of that depict a society in which enlightenment epistemological principles have been supplanted by revelationism but, paradoxically or accidentally, scientific progress has still continued? Dune seems like a maybe here, and I can’t think of anything else right now.
