Eighth Building Bridges Seminar: Science and Religion
The eighth Building Bridges Seminar, which was held in June 2009 and was hosted by Bahcesehir University, Istanbul, focused on the interface between science and religion as it has been approached by Christians and Muslims, past and present. A sequence of public lectures was followed by discussions in small groups of Christian and Islamic texts from the Bible and Qur'an and from the classical and contemporary periods. Writings by Charles Darwin and Richard Dawkins were also considered. The proceedings of the seminar were published as <em>Science and Religion: Christian and Muslim Perspectives</em> (2012).
