Starting from Tuesday, January 10, 2017, 19:00, and every Tuesday of January, the National Hellenic Research Foundation organizes a series of lectures for the public titled "Science & Religion: A complicated relationship". The lecture series is organized within the framework of the project "Science & Orthodoxy around the World", of the Institute of Historical Research.
Project SOW - Science & Orthodoxy around the World focuses on the dialog between science and religion in the Orthodox Christian world. More than 50 specialists from 15 countries participate from various academic fields such as Science, Philosophy, History, Theology and Education. It reaches out to all relevant scholars, researchers specializing in the study of Science & Religion throughout the world, as well as a wider audience with an interest in issues that arise from the relation of sciences with faith. SOW’s actions are presented through this web portal, three large international conferences with parallel workshops and proceedings volumes, two separate workshops, public lectures, one documentary and 45 peer-reviewed articles.
