image: Letters headerLong ago, when I used to have a part-time job in Swift Hall, I would pass a Latin inscription that, roughly translated, read "Blessed is he who has not seen but has believed." To whom is this attributed? I am guessing either Thomas Aquinas or St. Augustine. Can you solve my dilemma?

That Divinity School inscription--"Blessed are they that have not seen, and yet have believed"--goes back to some of the earliest Christian writings; see John 20:29. --Ed.
