The University of Malta and the Faraday Institute for Science and Religion, from Cambridge, UK, recently held its first Faraday course in Malta on the theme ‘Science and religion – two views or two realities?’.

During the course, held at Mount St Joseph spirituality centre, Mosta, the participants discussed various themes, including ‘Science and religion: clash of worldviews’, ‘Religion, religious practices in Neolithic Malta’, ‘Cosmology and faith’, ‘Faith and reason: the case of the Bible and archaeology’, ‘The genome of man: shaped by the past and editing for the future’, ‘The environmental crisis: ecological, environmentalist and religious convergences and divergences’, ‘The mythical conflict: have science and religion got on better than people think?’, ‘Science and miracles’, ‘I God’, and ‘The Church breathing with two lungs on Homo Technologicus’.

This is the first of a series of events planned by the Faraday Course Malta Organising Committee. To contact the committee, e-mail
