* The Man in the Leather Mask to be Topic of History Department's Spring Lecture

The History Department’s Spring Lecture is set for Thursday, March 22 at 4 p.m. in Eykamp Hall, Ridgway University Center. The guest speaker will be Martin Dotterweich, associate professor of history and Chair of the Department of History at King College. His topic will be “The Man in the Leather Mask: Prophecy and Calvinism in Early Modern Scotland.”

Dotterweich holds a BA from Wheaton College, an MDiv from Gordon-Conwell Theological Seminary, and a PhD from the University of Edinburgh. He has had work published in Studies in Church History, Records of the Scottish Church History Society, the Oxford Dictionary of National Biography, Biographical Dictionary of Evangelicals, and contributed to the book Literature and the Scottish Reformation (ed Crawford Gribben and David Mullan). He specializes in early modern religious practice in Scotland, particularly the unique role of prophecy in the Protestant kirk, for which he won a John B. Stephenson research fellowship from the Appalachian College Association in spring 2010. He also researches marginal annotation in early printed English Bibles, on which he most recently presented a paper at the conference “The King James Bible and the World it Made 1611-2011” at Baylor University in 2011. Frequently involved in community and church education, he appeared earlier this month as a panelist on the dramatization of A Tale of Two Cities at the Barter Theatre in Abingdon, Va. He serves on the governing board of the Buechner Institute for Faith and Culture.

“For all its jarring strangeness and wild inaccuracy, prophecy is not a thing of the past,” says Dotterweich. “Only last week Harold Camping apologized for foretelling the end of the world in 2011. We love to predict the future, forecasting the weather, the economy, the next iPhone, or the NCAA Tournament bracket. Why does prophecy appeal to us so much, and what role does it play in society?  “The Man in the Leather Mask: Prophecy and Calvinism in Early Modern Scotland” attempts to dissect this phenomenon by looking back at the part that prophecy played in the development of the Scots Protestant kirk in the sixteenth and seventeenth centuries.”

“From John Knox’s thunderous oracles to Mary, Queen of Scots,” Dotterweich explains, “ to the personal pronouncements of Alexander Peden a century later, prophecy shaped the Scots unlike any other European nation.  Yet prophecy was at odds with the Calvinism of the Scots kirk, just as it would be with the Enlightenment that came to Scotland in the early eighteenth century. Through the strange history of the man in the leather mask, this lecture examines how the ancient practice of Second Sight merged with Protestant religious practice, how it survived in hostile environments, and how it continues to function today.”

* Blue Raiders Take Two From Aces

The University of Evansville softball team fell in both halves of today’s doubleheader at Middle Tennessee, dropping a 5-2 decision to the Blue Raiders in game one before suffering a 1-0 heartbreaker in game two.

As a team, Evansville tallied ten hits on the day, led by freshmen Kayla Fortner and Victoria Dellorto, who each ended the day 3-for-6 at the plate.

The Aces (7-16) will return to action this weekend, hosting Missouri State in a three-game Missouri Valley Conference series

Fortner blasted her third home run of the season in the bottom of the first, sending a line drive shot over the leftfield wall to give UE a 2-0 lead to open game one.

The Blue Raiders struck back in the bottom of the second, putting two runners on with a pair of singles. With one out on the board, Kelsey Woodruff drove a double down the left field line, scoring Kaycee Popham to give MTSU its first run of the game. Samantha Nieves then followed with a sacrifice fly to centerfield to bring home Natalie Ysais, tying the score at 2-all before the inning ended.

The Blue Raiders broke out to the lead in the bottom of the fifth, using three hits and a wild pitch to push across two runs. Woodruff connected with her second double of the game before Neives followed with a single to put runners on the corners. Head coach Mark Redburn then made a call to the bullpen, bringing in junior Sarah Patterson in relief of starter Taylor Perry. A wild pitch from Patterson allowed Woodruff to cross the plate to give MTSU the lead. Later in the inning, Nina Dever connected with her fifth double of the season to score Neives for the second run of the inning to give MTSU the 4-2 lead.

The Blue Raiders tacked on one more run as Ysais drove a solo home run over the left field wall.

Perry (1-3) took the loss in the mound, as she was credited with four runs and five hits in the loss.

Ysais reached base on an infield error to start the bottom of the second inning in game two. Starter Emily Morris was able to retire the next two batters to put two outs on the board, but a second infield error allowed Kristi Marquez to reach base as Ysais moved to third. In a pick-off attempt, catcher Lauren Lum threw down to second to bait Ysais off the bag, but the play resulted in a double steal, as Ysais was able to be the throw back home to score as Marquez moved to second. Morris retired the next batter to end the inning, but the damage had been done as MTSU used the unearned run to take a 1-0 lead.

Evansville out-hit MTSU by a count of #-1, but was unable to capitalize as the Blue Raiders held the Aces scoreless through seven innings.

Morris (1-3) was lights out in just her second start of the season, allowing just one hit in the complete-game effort.
