Visual Arts Universities in Europe

box_17_album_lowres_page31February 7 is the release of George Clooney’s The Monuments Men–a story of men and women locating, protecting, and saving art, monuments, and archives during World War II. The University of Illinois’ own Dr. Edwin Carter Rae was a Monument Man, and his story can be found in the University Archives.

College of Fine Arts faculty member Edwin Carter Rae was an art historian, a U.S. soldier, and an administrator who participated in international efforts to return confiscated artwork from Nazi holdings after World War II. Rae’s official diary begins with the entry:

0006840August 11 – 22, 1945,

ECR instated as Chief, Monuments, Fine Arts, and Archives Branch, Detachment E1F3 APO 658, which became on 15 Aug 45 Detachment E-201, Co. F. 3d Military Government Regiment APO 403. Chief concern is to regularize field reports, provide better protection and surveillance of monuments, and to reestablish the German agencies on a decent, efficient basis.

Before and after his military service, Edwin Carter Rae (1911-2002) was Professor of Art History (1939-1942, 1947-1979), and he later became Chairman of the Art History Department (1954-79). A Harvard University graduate and former instructor at Brown University and Pembroke College, Edwin Carter Rae joined the College of Fine Arts as an instructor of art history in 1939. Rae completed his dissertation “Gothic Architecture in Ireland” in 1942, and he received his Ph.D. from Harvard in 1943. After four years of teaching at Illinois, Rae left for Europe.

Meanwhile, in 1943, Allied armies administrators established the Monuments, Fine Arts, and Archives program to protect cultural properties in war areas during World War II. Colloquially, MFAA men and women were known as “Monument Men”. Such professionals were charged with protecting and locating art in territories affected by World War II. Their collective work continued after the war and continues today under the management of multiple international organizations.

Ancient Europeans Mysteriously Vanished 4,500 Years Ago
The genetic lineage of Europe mysteriously transformed about 4,500 years ago, new research suggests.
The findings, detailed today (April 23) in the journal Nature Communications, were drawn from several skeletons unearthed in central Europe that were up to 7,500 years old.
"What is intriguing is that the genetic markers of this first pan-European culture, which was clearly very successful, were then suddenly replaced around 4,500 years ago, and we don't know why," said study co-author Alan Cooper, of the University of Adelaide Australian Center for Ancient DNA, in a statement

Earliest human footprints outside of Africa

Archaeologists announced Friday that they have discovered human footprints in England that are between 800,000 and 1 million years old — the most ancient found outside Africa, and the earliest evidence of human life in northern Europe.
A team from the British Museum, London’s Natural History Museum and Queen Mary college at the University of London uncovered imprints from up to five individuals in ancient estuary mud at Happisburgh on the country’s eastern coast.

The sad truth is, the countries of the EU

With American generosity. We not only accept their students into our universities, but they often get funding from the universities--at least, on the graduate level. No university in Europe would offer this to an American. Once they've graduated, all they have to do is look for an employer to sponsor them, and they're in. The EU (and Canada) don't mind taking advantage of us, but have all kinds of rules which keep Americans out of their job markets. It's ridiculous. Until they are willing to reciprocate, we should operate in exactly the same exclusionary way they do.

Post-Christianity  — First Things
Christians founded universities in medieval Europe. They were Christian institutions, but no one (to my knowledge) sat down to work out an explicitly Christian model of education before starting a university.
