WOF 208: The Queen of the Sciences

Should theology be a core subject studied in universities? John Henry Newman certainly thought so. Today, we share a sample lesson from Bishop Barron’s Word on Fire Institute course on Newman, titled “The Queen of the Sciences.” It focuses on Newman’s book, Idea of a University, and his comments on the role of religion in the circle of university disciplines.

Join the Word on Fire Institute today and get access to all 12 lessons in Bishop Barron’s course on Newman.
