The Interaction of Science and Theology in Alternative Medicine

by Fr. Phillip J. Linden
Dr. Gerald M. Boodoo
Dr. Michelle B. Boissiere
Dr. Joseph O. Olubadewo

This interdisciplinary project involved two students and four faculty members from the College of Pharmacy, and the Biology and Theology departments (Joseph O. Olubadewo, Fr. Phillip J. Linden, Gerald M. Boodoo, and Michelle Bell Boissiere). The focus of this group was the meeting point of science and medical care with religious beliefs and theological principles exemplified by Alternative Medicine. During the Fall 1998 semester, Xavier University and its Theology Department hosted a conference on Religion and Science: Faith in Dialogue with Reason. The John Templeton Foundation presented this conference.
