Theology of Science Mini-Grants

Interdisciplinary Project

2021 Seed Grant from AAAS

In 2021, Holy Apostles College and Seminary in Cromwell, Connecticut was awarded a seed grant from the American Association for the Advancement of Science (AAAS) Dialogue on Science, Ethics, and Religion (DoSER) program in their Science in Seminaries project.

The title of our project is “Assessing Contemporary Science in the Light of Faith.” It will teach non-scientist faculty members at the college how to articulate developments in current research in biological or biochemical fields. Participants will review the Christian contribution to modern science, how science is conducted, how scientific papers are organized, how humans are co-creators, how to analyze science in the light of faith, and how scholars might complete the scientific revolution in the future.

Workshop topics include:
