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.
