The Research Center on the Dialogue between Science and Theology aims, via its multidisciplinary team, to answer three sets of questions that are a major concern for our world in the last period and beyond.

RCDST provides to all interested teachers and researchers a series of books, in Romanian or English, appeared in last years on the subjects RCDST has its areas of research. All materials appearing in this project are displayed with teaching and research purposes only, without commercial interest, as ORDA disposed in 2013. To enter our "reading" room will be necessary registration and will be required the authentification of the position of either researcher / teacher / student. Also, anyone who wants to share with other researchers manuals, books or other materials indicated by our research, can take part in the improvement of the library`s book fund by submitting data and materials (pdf / epub) to the virtual library administrator.
