St.Petersburg Educational Center for Religion and Science (SPECRS)

For the last four years the St. Petersburg School of Religion and Philosophy (SRPh) has considered developing certain steps in the field of science and faith interface in St.Petersburg, Russia, and discovering possibilities of supporting such developments.

After the promising start of the conference Science and Faith: The Problem of the Human Being in Science and Theology, in St. Petersburg in 2000 ( Research Projects, Translation and Publication), it became clear that the purpose of further interface development should be an attempt to establish a group of scholars to explore ways in which the dialogue can be developed in Russia/CIS. And we were glad that we were able to bring together those people, who are working towards the same aims in different places, cities and countries. This group is now working in the frame of St.Petersburg Educational Center for Religion and Science (SPECRS) launched by SRPh and affiliated to SRPh and supported by Local Societies Initiative (LSI) of METANEXUS Institute on Religion and Science http://www.metanexus.net.

To-day, after the work done in 2000-2010 within preparatory activities of the Templeton conferences in St.Petersburg and in Moscow in 1999, 2000, 2001, 2005 the number of publications in Russian in English of 2001, series of SPECRS seminars of 2002-2006, GPSS investigations of 2005-2006, JTF (former MGNI) project 2009-2012, we can say that SPECRS is a perspective tool to promote and to develop science and religion dialogue among individuals, scientists and scholars. This process of organizational work of SPECRS went together in cooperation and consultations with the St.Petersburg Association of Scientists and Scholars, St.Petersburg Scientific Center of Russian Academy of Sciences, St.Petersburg Theological Academy and Seminary, Committee on Science and Higher Education of the St.Petersburg Administration, academic and theological institutions in the cities of Russian Federation/CIS, and the interested groups in Estonia, Poland, Slovenia, Hungary, Germany, Holland, England and USA ( see some names at List of SPECRS Participants).To-day, after the work done in 2000-2010 within preparatory activities of the Templeton conferences in St.Petersburg and in Moscow in 1999, 2000, 2001, 2005 the number of publications in Russian in English of 2001, series of SPECRS seminars of 2002-2006, GPSS investigations of 2005-2006, JTF (former MGNI) project 2009-2012, we can say that SPECRS is a perspective tool to promote and to develop science and religion dialogue among individuals, scientists and scholars.
