Albertus Magnus Society
The Albertus Magnus Society gathers people who share an academic, professional or personal interest in exploring issues at the intersection of religious belief and scientific insight. Members participate in an ongoing conversation and help develop the society’s programs, which include formal lectures by noted thinkers, informal seminars and more.
