What and when was the Christmas star?

-

Location: Digital Visualization Theater, 100 Jordan Hall of Science

Christmas Star

The Gospel of Matthew records a peculiar astronomical event that occurred at the birth of Christ. Mathews has applied the tools of modern astrophysics to the search for evidence of this event. His program will examine whether the “Christmas Star” was a nova, a supernova or a planet alignment and discuss the possible identity of the “wise men from the East.” He will describe recent evidence that points toward new answers to the nature and time of appearance of this special event.

The public programs will be followed by a special video presentation of “A Season of Lights.”

The program is sponsored by Notre Dame’s Department of Physics and Center for Astrophysics.

CST Research Lab Seminal Conference

Location: Rome Global Gateway

January 5 –  7, 2017

Over the past 30 years the USCC and American Catholic institutions of higher education have developed mechanisms and institutes to teach the Catholic social tradition. Now is the time to create a formal way to measure the impact of the teaching and apply these best methods not only nationally, but become aware of what is replicable internationally. The proposal of the Center for Social Concerns is to create an international Catholic Social Tradition Research Lab for the University of Notre Dame to measure the application of CST
