Abstract

Dr. Robert J. Schneider completed thirty-two years on the faculty of Berea College, retiring in 2001 as distinguished professor of general studies and professor of classical languages. He taught courses in Latin and Greek languages and literatures, and also general studies courses that explored topics in biblical literature, history of Christian thought, history of science, classical mythology, and contemporary fiction. His senior seminar at Berea College, "Science and Faith," allowed him to combine life-long interests in science and in religious thought.

A graduate of the University of the South (1961), Bob earned a doctorate in medieval studies from the University of Notre Dame in 1965. He also is the recipient of two teaching awards. In 1989 the student body and faculty of Berea College honored him with the Seabury Award for Excellence in Teaching, and in 1993 he received the Acorn Award for excellence in teaching and scholarship from the Kentucky Advocates for Higher Education.
