London, England -- Science and Faith at the Thomas More Institute

Some forty specialists from Europe and the United States came together in London to reflect on science and religion at an international conference on the work of Mariano Artigas (1938-2006), a priest of the Opus Dei Prelature and a philosopher of science. The event was held from May 7 to 9 at the Thomas More Institute.

Taking part, among others, was Karl Giberson, one of the principal scholars working in this field in the United States and co-author with Mariano Artigas of the book Oracles of Science (Oxford University Press). Also participating were William Carroll, from the University of Oxford; Marie George, from St. John’s University, New York; Rafael Martínez and Valeria Ascheri, from the Pontifical University of the Holy Cross, Rome; and Thomas Glick from Boston University. The talks addressed such questions as the treatment of science in the media, the relation between science and theology, and evolutionism.

Mariano Artigas was a pioneer in the intellectual debate between science and religion. He taught physics at the University of Barcelona, and later became a professor at the University of Navarra. His writings, consisting of more than 20 books and 300 articles, prologues, collective studies, etc., led to many awards, including a Templeton Foundation Prize. His works have been published by Oxford University Press, Johns Hopkins University Press, the University Press of America, and the Templeton Foundation Press, with translations into German, Italian, Portuguese, Japanese, and Korean.
