Holy Apostles College & Seminary

The Science for Seminaries project at Holy Apostles College and Seminary, “Assessing Contemporary Science in the Light of Faith,” developed resources to teach non-scientist faculty how to explore current scientific research, with a focus on biological and biochemical fields, and engage in science-theology dialogue from a Catholic perspective.

A workshop, offered by Stacy Trasancos under the title, “Reading Science in the Light of Faith,” aimed to develop among participants a historically contextualized understanding of science-theology dialogue, to introduce the skills necessary to read and analyze contemporary scientific literature on its own terms, and to frame a procedure for assessing the relevance and relationship of specific scientific claims to the tenets of Catholic faith. The workshop series, first offered as a live webinar series, was developed into a set of six film resources. Films were produced on the following topics and can be viewed at theologyofscience.org:

  • “Christianity and the Birth of Modern Science”
  • “How Scientific Research is Conducted”
  • “The Structure of Scientific Papers”
  • “Sort Out the System of Wills”
  • “Analyze Science in the Light of Faith”
  • ” Complete the Scientific Revolution with a Theology of Science”

Holy Apostles College & Seminary is a Catholic theological school in Cromwell, Connecticut.
