From Enlightenment to Entanglement 

Ten events have taken place across three streams of activity (Sunday Science Evensongs, Faith in Science Lectures, Science in the Cathedral tours). The Sunday events took the format of a traditional sung Evensong, with scientist-Christians taking the sermon slot to introduce the themes of the project. Invited speakers discussed the themes of the project – including genetics, AI, the big bang and physics – in depth in a lecture-theatre environment. The second lecture was moved from the University to the Cathedral in an attempt to move the audience between venues; this proved successful. Two walking tours led by Derby historians helped to illuminate Derby’s heritage of Christian scientific discovery by telling the story of a number of Enlightenment thinkers including John Whitehurst, John Flamsteed and George Sorocold.
