Abstract

Although some still see the relationship between the sciences and humanities as dichotomous, scholars and non-scholars alike are acknowledging the conjoined histories of science and religion. As Dr. Catherine L. Newell suggests, the two categories have more in common than most realize. Drawing upon her research in their mutual histories and her administration of the Medical Humanities minor at the University of Miami, Newell highlights the potential growth such a perspective might provide for future and current health professionals alike.
