    It was Lincoln’s death on Good Friday, April 15, 1865, that united religion and patriotism in the observance of a national death that represented ALL who had died. As Lincoln had died for the nation, now each soldier’s death belonged to the whole nation. Lincoln’s bones were buried but thousands of soldiers lay unburied their bones littering battlefields across the South. For the first time in history a nation would create national cemeteries to honor their deaths.

We ventured across vast wastes, sailed uncharted oceans, and even took to the sky.

    Have you ever been so angry you felt like you were “hulking out”? Did you ever walk into a dangerous situation and feel your “spider-sense” tingle? Have you fantasized people would be sorry for how they treated you if they only knew your secret identity? Welcome to modern society, where superhero culture has become the metaphorical prism through which we see—and live—our lives. With roots in the Bible and myth, the superhero speaks to our psyches in profound, fascinating ways that bear serious consideration. In this entertaining, informative presentation, accompanied by a dynamic slide show, comics expert Danny Fingeroth explores the reasons these colorful characters--in comics, in movies, and on TV--are potent myths for our times.

    Few people today have heard of Friar Roger Bacon, an English Franciscan from the Thirteenth Century. But even a cursory examination of his many writings can amaze the modern reader with the clarity of his explanation of what we now call the scientific method, and the numerous predictions he made for future science – all based on his remarkable talent for study and observation. The course looks at Friar Bacons’ predecessors, his methods, his writings, his aims, and his predictions; and finally how his writings anticipated inventions and scientific principles that we take for granted today.
