Dr. Carroll is Professor of History at Cornell College (IA).

Dr. Carroll is a long time friend of Augustana Philosophy Prof. Michael Waddell.

Dr. Carroll speaks at 7:30 PM on Sept 27, 2000 in the Alumni Auditorium, GSC 100, at Augustana College.

His topic is "The Galileo Affair and the Myth of the Warfare Between Science and Religion."

The story of Galileo's encounter with the Inquisition in the early 17th Century continues to serve as evidence for the widely accepted view of the incompatibility between science and religion. William Carroll will re-examine this story and challenge the traditional interpretation of the 'Galileo Affair'.

The lecture is free and open to the public.
