The next conference of the society will take place in Bishop Grosseteste University, Lincoln on 18-20 July 2014.

This conference will explore the relationship between the pursuit of scientific and religious knowledge in the middle-ages, with a particular focus on Grosseteste. It will discuss his theological and scientific understanding, particularly of the new Greek and Arab learning, and how this influenced his theological and philosophical investigations. Whilst the main focus of the conference is on Grosseteste, it will also deal with the work of his contemporaries, as well as later writers who drew on his learning, in order to advance the study of science and religion. Keynote speakers include Prof. Tom McLeish and Dr Giles Gasper from Durham University’s Ordered Universe Project and Amanda Power of the University of Sheffield. It is expected that the proceedings of this conference will be published.

Proposals for 40 minutes papers or enquiries should be directed by 31 January to Dr Jack Cunningham, j.p.cunningham@bishopg.ac.uk, Bishop Grosseteste University, Lincoln, LN1 3DY, UK. Proposals should be 300-400 words in length and should include you telephone number or e-mail address, as well as your academic affiliation (if any). Further details, as they come available, will appear under the 2014 Conference tab of this site.
