In October 1990 Prof. Stanley L. Jaki, who had come to Madrid for a Symposium on “Physics and Religion in Perspective”, generously sponsored by BBV, UNED and the Matritense Economic Royal Society of Friends of the Country (RSEMAP) and had spoken at the Royal Academy of Exact, Physical and natural Sciences with Dr. Ignacio Cantarell, Dr. Rodolfo Núñez de las Cuevas and Dr. Julio A. Gonzalo, among others in attendance, proposed the creation of a Society to foster science within culture. Soon thereafter steps were taken to constitute such a Society, being Prof. Ángel Romero his first President, Mr. Santiago Fentanes its first Secretary and Dr. Ignacio Cantarell its first Treasurer.

From its inception, A.E. CIENCIA Y CULTURA has organized the following activities:
