Dr. William E. Carroll
Dr. Carroll is a Research Fellow in Theology and Science at
Blackfriars Hall, Oxford and a member of the Faculty of Theology of
the University of Oxford. His research and teaching concern the
reception of Aristotelian science in mediaeval Islam, Judaism, and
Christianity, and the development of the doctrine of creation; and
the encounter between Galileo and the Inquisition. He has also
written extensively on the ways in which mediaeval discussions of
the relationship among the natural sciences, philosophy, and
theology can be useful in contemporary questions arising from
developments in biology and cosmology.
He is the author of Creation and Science (London,
2011); Galileo: Science and Faith (London, 2009); La
Creación y las Ciencias Naturales: Actualidad de Santo Tomás de
Aquino (Santiago, Chile, 2003), and co-author with Steven
Baldner of Aquinas on Creation (Toronto, 1997).
He has a BA from the University of Notre Dame and an MA and PhD
from the University of Michigan.
This is an FYE event,
sponsored by CDI and the Division of Natural Sciences.
