Stanley L. Jaki, a Benedictine monk and Professor of Astrophysics at Seton Hall University, was a leading thinker in areas at the boundary of science and theology.

He was a Fellow of Princeton from 1960-1962 and a visiting Fellow of the Institute of Advanced Studies at Princeton from 1966-1968. His many books carefully delineate the importance of differences as well as similarities between science and religion. The judges of the Prize said that he offered the world a reinterpretation of the history of science.
