Today’s featured entry from the Vatican Observatory Faith and Science pages:
“Agnes Mary Clerke and the Rise of Astrophysics” (CLICK HERE for it)
A book about the Irish Catholic science writer Agnes Mary Clerke, written by Mary T. Brück (herself an astronomer). Brück discusses Clerke’s family, her work, her friendships, her incredible ability to grasp and process scientific information and make it understandable to broader audiences, her skill with languages, and even her attention to the ideas of St. Thomas Aquinas.

The Faith and Science pages (F&S) are a unique resource on the web. The material in F&S is stuff that you will find nowhere else (or at least not without a lot of digging). Featured areas on F&S include “History of Church and Science”; “Church and Science Today”; “Science and Scripture”; “Science, Religion & Society”; “Life in the Universe”; “Cosmology”; and more. The level of the F&S material ranges from being accessible to all audiences, with even some material oriented toward young readers, up to material for university specialists.
The F&S pages, like this blog, are made possible by the Vatican Observatory Foundation (the Vatican Observatory’s US operation that operates the Vatican Advanced Technology Telescope, or VATT, in Arizona). CLICK HERE to support the F&S pages, this blog, and the operation of the VATT.
