Francis Fiorenza Named Henry Luce III Fellow in Theology for 2005-06

Francis Schüssler Fiorenza, Stillman Professor of Roman Catholic Theological Studies at HDS, has been named as one of seven Henry Luce III Fellows in Theology for 2005-2006, in the area of constructive theology. The announcement was made in March by the Association of Theological Schools in the United States and Canada (ATS) and the Henry Luce Foundation, Inc.

In his year-long Luce project, Fiorenza will be analyzing la nouvelle théologie, a theology that influenced the Second Vatican Council. His work will address the ambiguities, consequences, and challenges associated with this theology, and how they contribute to the broader task of interpreting the history of Roman Catholic theology in the twentieth century.

Established in 1993, the Henry Luce III Fellows in Theology program is supported by a grant from the Henry Luce Foundation, honoring Henry Luce III. The Association of Theological Schools, located in Pittsburgh, is the accrediting and program agency for graduate theological education in North America.
