The Church and Science: Conflict or Complexity?

Dr. Don O'Leary
The next lecture in our Spring series will take place in the library at 6.30 pm on Tuesday 9th April.

Our speaker will be Dr. Don O'Leary, and his topic will be the relationship between  Roman Catholicism and the world of science. Are these two worlds necessarily in conflict, or is their relationship better understood as one of rich complexity?

Dr. O'Leary is a Senior Technical Officer in the Department of Anatomy and Neuroscience at University College Cork. He has extensive experience in biomedical research using transmission electron microscopy. He is a historian and the author of a number of books, including Roman Catholicism and Modern Science : a history (New York and London: Continuum, 2006) and Irish Catholicism and Science: from "Godless Colleges" to the "Celtic Tiger" (Cork: Cork University Press, 2012).
