Charles H. Townes Lecture Series
The Charles H. Townes Lecture Series in Faith and Reason was established in 2006 by its namesake, 1935 Furman graduate, and 1964 Nobel Laureate Charles Townes, to highlight the common ground between science and religion.
This lecture series named in his honor seeks to continue Townes’ spirit of inquiry and dialogue by inviting discussion of significant human questions that are addressed by both faith and reason.
The Charles H. Townes Lecture Series in Faith and Reason has been funded through gifts from the John Templeton Foundation and Nobel Laureate, the late Charles H. Townes.
Our 2019-2020 lecture series will begin with guest lectures from Dr. Daniel Sulmasy.
