Request for ProposalsPast WinnersBibliographyAbout Us


Science and religion is a growing and distinct body of literature. The Templeton Research Lectures seeks to add creative and original thought to this body of literature. It is therefore essential that projects engage the literature of the field, so as not to rehash topics already discussed, but there is no expectation that any one agree with what has already been published. Below are some links to bibliographies, as well as, course syllabi, which give references for important work in the field. The references are somewhat biased to Christian perspectives, in part because Christian intellectuals have been more active in exploring these ideas. Scholarly explorations of diverse religious traditions and perspectives are welcome.
