Professor Greg Dodds spoke for Sabbath Seminar last week, April 20, 2013, from 10:30-11:30 am in CTC 105, on  "The Heliocentric Anti-Christ". 

Here is how Professor Dodds described his presentation to history majors and minors in a note he sent to them earlier today:

"I will be looking at how first Catholics and then Protestants responded to and struggled with the idea that the earth revolves around the sun.  I will especially focus on debates that took place in England around 1700 where Protestants felt that if they believed in heliocentrism they would lose a literal reading of Genesis 1 and, by extension, the entire Bible.  It was the beginning of controversies over Genesis 1 and origins that we are still engaged in."
