This conference arises out of the project "Science and Orthodoxy around the World" organized   by the Greek National Research Foundation and funded by the Templeton WCF. Its main goals are  to show how

• the Orthodox Christian approach to science can benefit the ongoing general discussion in         Science and Religion and to

• map the ongoing discussion among the Orthodox Christian Community on the science- religion relationship and to

• ensure that this important contribution from Orthodoxy is included in the global discussion on   Science and Religion.

A collaborative event between The Faraday Institute for Science and Religion (Cambridge) and the Institute of Historical Research / National Hellenic Research Foundation (Athens)
