  • Obituary: Father Robert Taft, SJ, scholar, liturgist and ecumenist

    To state that Jesuit Father Robert F. Taft was known around the world would not be an exaggeration. From his early life as a Jesuit, he looked east and with support of the society he went east. An internationally acknowledged scholar of Eastern Christianity, especially its liturgy and liturgical history, he was greatly respected for his prodigious output of books and articles; he was admired as a teacher at Rome's Pontifical Oriental Institute (more than three decades) and at the University of Notre Dame in Indiana.

Among those who studied at the Orientalum while he was a student there was the present Ecumenical Patriarch of Constantinople, Bartholomew I.
