The Christopher Dawson Society for the Study of Faith and Reason, founded by Professor Douglas Ambrose, seeks to investigate the relation between religious belief and intellectual inquiry within the Western intellectual tradition. Named for Christopher Dawson (1889-1970), the distinguished British historian of culture and the first recipient of the Chauncey Stillman Chair of Roman Catholic Studies at Harvard University, the Society will meet monthly to discuss texts that illuminate the ways in which persons of faith have sought to engage the intellectual world of the ancient, medieval, early modern, modern, and postmodern West.

We will have an announcement about the inaugural meeting of the Society at the Alexander Hamilton Institute in about a week.
