Faraday Institute for Science and Religion
The Faraday Institute for Science and Religion is an interdisciplinary research enterprise based at St Edmund's College, Cambridge. The Institute has four main activities:
- Scholarly research and publication on science and religion, including the organisation of invited groups of experts to write joint publications.
- To provide short-term courses in science and religion.
- To organise seminars and lectures on science and religion.
- To provide accurate information on science and religion for the international media and wider public.
The Faraday Institute has a Christian ethos, but encourages engagement with a wide diversity of opinions concerning interactions between science and religion, without engaging in advocacy. It aims to provide accurate information in order to facilitate informed debate.
Staff: Prof. Bob White (Director); Prof. Keith Fox (Associate Director); Dr Andrew Jackson (Director of External Affairs).

The website is well constructed. There are many sections between which we point out:
- “Events”, that contains the description and the logistic information about courses, conferences, seminars and lectures.
- “Research”, with a list of projects and their reference.
- “Resources” (media, articles, reviews, books). The section includes a link to the website “Test of Faith”, including a series of introductory resources on science and Christianity for both adults and young people, with contributions from leading scientists and theologians.
It is also available an online-shop to buy multimedia, books and the “Faraday Papers”.
