Metanexus just sent out the following announcement.
In case Ted fails to mention them, I thought I would
pass them along to the list:

Two Public Lectures by Edward B. Davis, April 15,
Philadelphia, PA--

1. 12 noon on Penn campus, Grad School of Education,
room 203 (3700 Walnut Street). "Science as Christian
Vocation: The Case of Robert Boyle."

Physics dept colloquium talk.

Edward B. (“Ted”) Davis, representing the Central
Pennsylvania Forum for Religion and Science, is
Distinguished Professor of the History of Science at
Messiah College (Grantham, PA), where he teaches
courses on Christianity and science. With Michael
Hunter of Birkbeck College (London), he edited The
Works of Robert Boyle, 14 vols. (Pickering & Chatto,
1999-2000), and a separate edition of Boyle’s treatise
on the doctrine of creation and the idea of nature,
A Free Enquiry into the Vulgarly Received Notion of
Nature (Cambridge, 1996).
He has also written extensively on the history of
religion and science since 1650 in Europe and the
United States, including an edition of The
Antievolution Pamphlets of Harry Rimmer (Garland
Publishing, 1995) and an article on modern
Jonah stories that was featured on the BBC radio
program, “Making History.”
With support from the National Science Foundation and
the John Templeton Foundation, he is currently writing
a book about the religious beliefs of prominent
American scientists in the 1920s. Additional
