There are 18 lectures in the series, which was launched in 1995 with the aim of exploring connections between the Christian tradition and other fields of learning.

Each lecture is given by a scholar with expertise in a particular field, who is invited to choose their own theme. These have covered a fascinating range of subjects, including the role of church music, religion vs science, life beyond death, and Australian spirituality.

For those who prefer the 'real book' experience, the complete series remains available in booklet form from the Cathedral Shop for $5 per lecture ($8 for The New Atheists).

Published online so far are:

Church Music at the Crossroads by Stephen Darlington
Exploration Towards God in a Scientific Age by Arthur Peacocke
Is There a Destiny Beyond Death? by John Polkinghorne
Justice and the Eucharist by Nicholas Sagovsky
The English Reformations and the Making of the Anglican Church by Chrisopher Haigh
Law and Religion by Kevin Parker
The Myth of an Australian Spirituality by Hugh Mackay
Choral Music: The Case for Excellence by Peter Phillips
The New Atheists by Keith Ward - you can also listen to Professor Ward's lecture on the Recordings page.

Other lectures are currently being prepared for online publication and will be uploaded soon.
