Before Original Sin

A Jesuit Themed Science Fiction Classic

James Blish's, A Case of Conscience (1958) is a classic work, which presents the trip of Jesuit priest to a planet,

inhabited by a species of intelligent dinosaurs, which appears to be existing – without religion of any kind --
in a state "before original sin." The priest perceives the planet as a diabolical trap, but the ending of the book is ambivalent.
