In Europe with all its rich diversity, we are a voluntary
    Society of scholars engaging in the
    Study of ideas regarding our
    Scientific knowledge and powers
    As they interact with our
    Theologies, our values, dreams and convictions


What is ESSSAT?
ESSSAT is a scholarly, non-confessional organization, based in Europe, which aims to promote the study of relationships between the natural sciences and theological views. ESSSAT has members from almost every European country as well as members from other continents. They have diverse confessional backgrounds, and may include believers as well as non-believers and atheists. As scientists, theologians, philosophers and historians they work on a better understanding of the interactions between two of the most powerful human pursuits, namely religion and science.


ESSSAT organizes the European Conferences on Science and Theology; awards the ESSSAT Research Prizes and the ESSSAT Student Prizes; publishes two series of books and jointly with The International Society for Science and Religion (ISSR) the journal "Reviews in Science, Religion and Theology".


ESSSAT’s aims are:

  • to advance open and critical communication between theology and science;

  • to share their knowledge for the mutual benefit of each

  • to work on the solution of interdisciplinary problems

In this task much of the Society's activity takes place within Judaeo-Christian religious contexts, but ESSSAT welcomes members of all faith traditions and none.
