Mathematics has a long history of building bridges to other disciplines, from its practical use in the sciences to more aesthetic connections with the arts. There is also a long tradition of bridges between mathematics and the realm of philosophical and theological discourse. In this paper, we take a brief tour of these latter connections. We consider in more detail some philosophical implications in the field of Dynamical Systems.
