It was good to be on campus for the week and not on the road. I enjoyed a wonderful week at Ave (and a hot one, too, with temperatures still in the 80’s!). The highlight was “The Galileo Affair” colloquium on Wednesday where Dr. Paul Baxa, who oversees the Honors Program, convened a forum of three of our professors (Dr. Ricardo Rodriquez – Physics; Dr. Michael Waldstein – Theology; and Dr. Jeffrey Hass – History) who engaged in a spirited discussion of the controversies surrounding the 17th century Church trial of Galileo. The Demetree lecture hall was nearly filled as our honor students and other members of the University community listened to the riveting discussion and presented the panel with questions and comments. Simply fascinating.
