This is the fifth of a series of lectures on General Relativity. The main topic of the present lecture will be the "Gödel universe". This is a solution of the Einstein field equations with several very remarkable features like, e.g., the existence of closed "time-like" curves. The lecture is directed to a broad audience. Hopefully, both mathematicians (at graduate level) and physicists (at advanced undergraduate level) will be able to benefit.
