Roberta Paul contemplates the complex relationships between empirical science and religious faith by juxtaposing Masaccio's iconic image, the "Expulsion of Adam and Eve from Paradise," with conceptual maps of the heavens......The Expulsion, for Paul, "is a metaphor for the burdens of the human condition and marks the journey of man and woman, now seekers of knowledge, forever crossing new horizons." -Francine Koslow Miller
