Welcome to the Zygon Center for Religion and Science

The Zygon Center is located at the Lutheran School of Theology at Chicago (LSTC). It is dedicated to relating religious traditions and the best scientific knowledge in order to gain insight into the origins, nature, and destiny of humans and their environment. The purpose of the Center is to bring together scientists, theologians, and other scholars to discuss and carry out research on basic questions and issues of human concern.

The Zygon Center sponsors two academic courses (offered through LSTC) each year: the Advanced Seminar in Religion and Science is offered each fall, and the the Epic of Creation and the Future of Creation courses are offered in the spring, in alternating years. The Zygon Center also sponsors conferences, symposia, and workshops throughout the year. Information about these events and courses can be found on the website. Read More
