Organized by the Religion and Science Research Group of the Széchenyi István University in Győr and Szent Mór Bencés Perjelség, they are organizing a commemorative conference this weekend to mark the centenary of the birth of László Jáki Szaniszló. The intellectual legacy of the famous Benedictine monk covers a wide range of fields, so the lectures, in addition to a historical presentation of his life's works, also seek to reflect on them further.

The high-quality program is hosted by Czuczor Gergely Bencés High School. Born in Gyor, Father Szaniszlo was swept by the waves of history to the United States, where he was ordained a priest and had a serious career. For his scientific work, he was also awarded the Templeton Prize, which was more valuable than the Nobel Prize. He donated a large portion of this amount for the construction of the new Benedictine College in the early 1990s. The famous historian of science, philosopher of science, Benedictine monk, Roman Catholic priest, theologian, physicist, and university professor examined the relationship between faith and science in his works.

He declared what Saint Paul preached, which is that we should have a reasonable faith. He believed that faith and science could be reconciled. “There are parts of natural science that even scientists cannot answer, and I think this is where the role of faith and religion in everyone’s life comes into play,” Pensiz Birgil Kelemen Saray Szabo told Győr+ Média.

High school teacher Gergely Bognar took on the role of main organizer of the conference. “The primary purpose of this event is to pay attention to the legacy of Jackie Szanieszlo. The relationship between religion and the natural sciences is still of great importance today. Many misunderstandings and misconceptions arise in this regard, both in everyday public discourse and in friendly conversations. “By paying attention to Jackie’s work, the lectures help us clarify and see these questions better.”
