Current Aspects and Thoughts on the Connections between Medicine and Religion

Ciobica Alin

Lately, a joint effort between medical science and religion has been developed and discussed, outlining their compatibility, together with several medical or health aspects. Thus, religion, together with science (in our case medicine) includes the human being as the source of wholeness and stability in an uncertain earthly world. In this way, especially for the past 20 years, we can see an increased connection between religious behaviors and health sciences. We present here our thoughts and ideas on the possible connections that might exist between medicine and religion.
