Carbonnelle, IGNATIUS, professor of mathematics and science, writer on mathematical and scientific subjects, and editor; b. at Tournai, Belgium, February 1 1829; d. at Brussels, March 4, 1889. He entered the Society of Jesus September 8 1844, applying himself to mathematical studies and contributing papers to the "Bulletins de l'academie royale de Belgique". After his ordination to the priesthood he spent six years, 1861 to 1867, teaching at Calcutta and was the first editor of the "Indo-European Correspondence", 1865-1867. On his return to Europe he became professor of mathematics and astronomy at Louvain, but was soon appointed to the staff of "Etudes" and thereafter was allowed to devote his time to writing. He published many articles in "Etudes", the "Revue catholique", the "Annales de la societe scientifique de Bruxelles" and the "Revue des questions scientifiques". In 1875 he founded the Scientific Society of Brussels, of which he became secretary in 1877, and from that year until his death he was editor of "Annales" and the "Revue". Some of his essays were republished under the title, "Les confins de la science et de la philosophic" (second edition in 2 vols., Paris, 1881).

"Deviating from faith, they are implicated in the darkness of perpetual blindness, although they have the day of Christ and the light of the Church before them; while seeing nothing, they open their mouth as if they knew everything, keen for vain things and dull for things eternal."
-- Ambrose, Bishop, Father and Doctor of the Church, Saint; commenting in the 4th century on the "wise of the world" who look askance at Christianity, a conflict that has existed from the very birth of the Faith (see "Science and the Church").
