Abstract NoteThe year 2011 marked the 80th anniversary of Georges Lema�itre's primeval atom model of the universe, forerunner of the modern day Big Bang theory. Prompted by this momentous anniversary the Royal Astronomical Society decided to publish a volume of essays on the life, work and faith of this great cosmologist, who was also a Roman Catholic priest. The papers presented in this book examine in detail the historical, cosmological, philosophical and theological issues surrounding the development of the Big Bang theory from its beginnings in the pioneering work of Lema�itre through to the modern day.This book offers the best account in English of Lema�itre's life and work. It will be appreciated by professionals and graduate students interested in the history of cosmology
