Featured Article: Maimonides

An artist's conception of Maimonides' appearance
Moshe ben Maimon, most commonly known by his Greek name Moses Maimonides, (March 30, 1135 – December 13, 1204) was a Jewish rabbi, physician, and philosopher. His work is unhesitatingly rationalist in spirit, both in his attempts to provide rational grounds for traditional Jewish law and in his picture of philosophy and rational inquiry as constitutive of the end of the perfection of the soul. His influence has been vast, on both the Jewish and Christian traditions (ranging from Aquinas to Spinoza).

Popular Article: Steve McQueen

McQueen in The Thomas Crown Affair (1968)
Terrence Stephen McQueen (March 24, 1930 - November 7, 1980) was an American actor. His antihero persona, emphasized during the height of the counterculture of the 1960s, made him a top box-office draw for his films of the late 1950s, 1960s, and 1970s. He was nicknamed the "King of Cool." In 1974, McQueen became the highest-paid movie star in the world, although he did not act in a film for another four years, instead spending his time on his passion - racing cars and motorcycles. Despite being known as a "bad boy," in his later years McQueen converted to Christianity.
