The aim of the Project for Science and Religion is to support ongoing intellectual discussion between scientists, philosophers, and theologians in domains pertaining to the modern sciences in dialogue with classical Christian understanding of creation and nature. The project is designed to be at the service of the contemporary academy as well as the Church, in discussion with religious and non-religious scholars.

The Dominican intellectual tradition has been marked by interdisciplinary dialogue even from its inception in the context of early engagement with Aristotle’s philosophy and scientific observations, and the Order of Preachers has had many practitioners of the philosophy of nature and of the sciences in the modern epoch. This initiative of the Angelicum Thomistic Institute facilitates academic research, doctoral direction, and conferences dedicated to this line of inquiry, in collaboration with other centers of research and other institutions of the Order.
