Pope Benedict XVI to Discuss Evolution

Pope Benedict XVI, who became well known for his views on evolution while he was still Cardinal Joseph Ratzinger, is conducting a weekend seminar entitled "Creation and Evolution" from September 2-3 at the Castel Gandolfo, the pontiff's summer home.

This seminar is the latest in the annual "Shulerkreis" or "student circle," a meeting the pope holds with his former Ph.D. students. Pope Benedict has been holding these seminars every year since the 1970s when he was a theology professor at the University of Regensburg in Germany.
