Robert Taft is a New England Province Jesuit who has taught and pursued his scholarship for 43 years in Rome. By dint of his travels in Eastern Europe and his vast erudition, he long ago became one of the Vatican's principal experts on Eastern rite churches. A list of his learned publications fill 14 pages in his c.v. He is also something of a great human being, with an emphasis on the word "human." The Vatican reporter John Allen has called Taft "a cross between Yves Congar and Lenny Bruce...the kind of man who, during a three block walk to dinner on a wintry Roman night, can move seamlessly from singing bawdy English drinking songs, to explaining why the Orthodox misinterpret the Fourth Crusade, to praising the Arnold Schwarzenegger shoot-'em-up classic "True Lies." We're bringing him all the way from Rome to give us an unsparing view of Orthodox/Catholic ecumenism today -- and what can be done to advance it.
