Body: 
On Tuesday morning, the president of a tiny Lutheran seminary on Chicago's South Side is expected to hand a 337-page book to a Greek Orthodox archbishop.In that simple gesture, the Lutheran School of Theology at Chicago, a one-building institution with 225 students, hopes to spark a movement that will lead institutions all over the world to return antiquities to their rightful owners. That's because the book is a complete New Testament, handwritten in Greek in the 9th century and looted 99 years ago from a monastery in northern Greece. Only 60 of the manuscripts exist. This one is worth at least six figures, far and away the most valuable piece owned by the Lutheran school.And the seminary is giving it back to the Greek Orthodox Church f...

There is a great myth regarding faith, in that it is supposed to be something that is accepted blindly. That’s not necessarily true, and one of history’s greatest theologians devoted his life to reaching faith through reason. St. Thomas Aquinas was a 13th century Italian Dominican Friar, one of Catholicism’s most profound philosophers and scholasticists. He’s known as the Father of Natural Theology, which sought to provide arguments for the existence of God using reason. For non-believers who are curious and continue to seek answers to theological questions, Aquinas is someone whose works are worth a read. “There are as many miracles in his life as articles in his Summa.” Of these, the “Summa Theologica” is his best-known work and walks ...
