If the use of mathematics as an adjunct to religion falls within your
interest, then please consult ARCHIVUM FRANCISCANUM HISTORICUM, 1982-84.
Within that time frame (I don't have a copy of the articles before me),
two lengthy articles appeared. The first illustrates how the great
theologians (Bonaventure, Duns Scotus, and others) used mathematics to
bolster their theological arguments; the second list Franciscans from
the earliest times to 1821 who wrote on mathematics.

Pace et bene!
