Baya Clare made this series of woodcuts about 15 years ago in the context of an independent study course in printmaking that she took at St. Kate’s while working on a master’s degree in theology.

Evolution and the Christian Creed in Dialogue: Elizabeth Johnson’s Ask the Beasts: Darwin and the God of Love, Fall 2014 Hedgerow Initiative
Elizabeth Johnson’s book Ask the Beasts imagines a dialogue between Darwin’s On the Origin of Species and the Christian story of the ineffable God of mercy and love in the Nicene Creed. For Johnson, science and religion are in communion, not conflict. The fall Hedgerow seminar joined in the dialogue, and explored ways in which a deeper love of the natural world is intrinsic to faith in God and ecological care is a moral imperative.
