Did key ideas in religious thought ultimately prove critical to the birth of science? Could recognizing the religious roots of modern science promote better engagement of religion and science today?
With perspectives from Islam, Christianity, and Judaism, our panel of distinguished experts—from the fields of physics, theology, history, and religious studies—will identify and discuss features and themes that helped lead to the development of science. This global conversation will be held virtually via Zoom, and audience viewers will have an opportunity to submit questions to the panelists.
