VIDEO: On Common Ground
Friday 17th March 2017
The opening event of our Lent course took place in the Cathedral earlier this month and was a talk from distinguished physicist, Professor Tom McLeish, under the title “The Continuing Dance of Science and Theology”. The talk emphasised the mutual complementarity of science and religion and countered the widespread view that these two aspects of our search for truth have nothing to say to each other. The theme was developed as the speaker lead us into an exploration of Faith and Wisdom in Science and of a Theology of Science.
Professor McLeish is a well-known, clear and engaging public speaker on national and international stages; he is very much involved in developing interactions between theology and science. The evening was chaired by the Bishop of Exeter, Rt Rev Robert Atwell.
A video of the event is now available on our YouTube channel. Watch the video online.
