Play, panel tackles law, religion, and science

March 24, 2009

In honor of the 400th anniversary of Galileo's discoveries, the Indiana University School of Law - Indianapolis will feature a one-man play and panel discussion regarding law, religion, and science this week.

Tim Hardy, actor, director, and faculty member of the Royal Academy of the Dramatic Arts, will perform "Galileo," at 6 p.m. Wednesday in the Wynne Courtroom at the law school. The play celebrates the anniversary of Galileo's discoveries and explores the tension between science and religion. Professor George Wright, the Lawrence A. Jegen III Professor of Law at the law school, will introduce the play and offer his views on the relation between science and religion. A panel discussion on canonical law and the issues of science vs. religious belief will follow the play.

To reserve a $15 ticket for the play, e-mail Vicki Hale at vhale@iupui.edu. Attendees may pay inside the law school near the door to the Wynne Courtroom, Lawrence W. Inlow Hall, 530 W. New York St., Indianapolis.
