TSJ Editor to lecture on Michael Servetus in Baltimore

I will be speaking on Michael Servetus, pioneering Spanish medical researcher and doomed theologian, at the Fortfest 2011 seminar next weekend (May 14-15) in Baltimore MD under the auspices of the International Fortean Organization (INFO). I'll be taking some copies of the TSJ with me and look forward to drawing parallels between Servetus and his approximate contemporary, William Tyndale.
