E.JANE VIA (continued from Pg. 2) . As ked how she sees th e ro le of reli gious stu dies in a liberal art s ed u– ca ti o n, Jane repli ed t hat it is an essential part o f hi ghe r edu cati o n w hether o r not on a Chri sti an campu s. " Religion is histo ri ca ll y and cu lturally a pervas iv e aspec t o f to tal human ex peri ence. It has had an enormous impact on th e develop– ment o f th e W es tern wo rl d, and eve n today we are see ing that most apparently politi ca l crises have rel igious d imensions.

wri ters, w ho had a wonderfu l idea but didn't know what to do w ith it. As if anticipati ng a noddi ng audience, Tru ffault heaps insult upon in sul t by trying to beef things up with some cinema ti c tri cks I had thought went out w ith th e w imple-e.g., spooky music w hen the Na,is are arou nd.
