A Catholic University?
In the comments below, "JohnR" reflects the thoughts of many casting thoughts back to a golden age of Catholic education and identiy:
I don't see a university campus as being part of the secular world. It should be deliberately removed--apart--from the hustle/bustle so that people can engage in thinking large thoughts.
Catholic Universities are intended to be Catholic bootcamps, preparing youth to battle the ignorance of a hostile public with reason, logic, and facts.
All positions with which I am sympathetic. I was speaking with someone about the issue of Catholic Universities, and he raised a question:
Was the University of Paris, c. 1250-1450, a "Catholic University"?
