Trevor Lipscombe on St. Albert the Great: the last man who knew everything

March 5, 2020

This talk is part of our 2020 Lenten speaker series, Scholar Saints.  The talks follow our Friday Stations of the Cross and Benediction that begins at 6pm.  A light meal and lecture begins at 7pm.

Trevor Lipscombe earned a doctorate in theoretical physics at the University of Oxford and was elected Fellow of the Royal Astronomical Society. He coauthored "Albert Einstein: A Biography" which has been translated into ten languages. Trevor's book "The Physics of Rugby", published by the University of Nottingham Press, was selected as one of the best ten physics books of the year, and was long listed for Britain's best sports book of the year. He is the editor of the Ignatius Press Critical Edition of Saint John Henry Newman's novel "Loss and Gain." Over sixty of Trevor's articles have appeared in scholarly journals as well as in more popular places, such as Time Magazine. His next book, "Quicker Calculations," is currently in production with Oxford University Press and will be published next year. None of which has anything to do with Saint Albert the Great.
