The Institute on Religion in an Age of Science

Purpose—IRAS () is an independent society of scientists, philosophers, religion scholars, theologians, and others who want to understand the role of religion in our dynamic scientific world.

Activities—Each year IRAS organizes a week‐long conference. Topics are selected to be relevant to current scientific thinking and to fundamental religious questions. (IRAS members pay a reduced rate for conference registration.)

IRAS has sponsored more than 250 meetings at universities, colleges, and theological schools. IRAS members may also join the lively online discussion group, and thus learn about new developments and publications, express their views, and become familiar with those of others.
