Anthony Lo Bello, Professor of Mathematics, will discuss “An Etymological and Encyclopedic Dictionary of the Catholic Church” in Campus Center 301/302 at 7 p.m. Wednesday, March 4. In January 2020, the Catholic University of America Press published his “Origins of Catholic Words”, an etymological dictionary of the vocabulary of Christianity in general and of the Catholic Church in particular.  Lo Bello will explain how he came to be invited to write this book, and he will then illustrate its method by considering some sample entries chosen for their appropriateness for an audience at a liberal arts college. Special guest appearances will be made by Mozart, Toscanini, Verdi, and the choir of Notre Dame de Paris.
