Note
"In October, 1991, twenty-one scholars with cross-disciplinary expertise ... met for a week-long research conference at the Vatican Observatory near Rome. The purpose of the conference was to explore the implications of quantum cosmology ... for theological and philosophical issues surrounding the topic of divine action. The resulting papers form the contents of this volume."--Intro
