This paper will explore Dalí’s post-war interest in unifying science and religion to his work. In Dalí’s opinion, science and religion were increasingly becoming interconnected; thus, the combination of atomic-age physics and Catholic doctrine could aid in his exploration of the “mystery of life.” Calling this contrast of fusion Nuclear Mysticism, he undertakes this method of treatment to justify Christianity for himself by using scientific principles to prove the validity of God.
