Since this is an ASA list it's relevant to point out that the constitution of the ASA (Article III, Section 2, c.) includes "history" in its broad definition of science for purposes of membership.

  While some aspects of history may not be relevant, I think we've all benefited from perspectives on history of science from Ted Davis, Michael Roberts etc. Historical perspectives on theology from George Murphy etc. have also been valuable. Culturally these things are very important: We've come from some place; we don't exist in a vacuum. And our religion has profoundly historical roots that didn't didn't come to an end with the Acts of the Apostles.

  While history never seems to be formally lumped with sciences, it's not that dissimilar from sciences such as sociology or anthropology.
