A look into the mind of one of the most random, crazy people in all the land.

Remembering Jaroslav Pelikan

This is somewhat late in coming, but I feel compelled to mention that a great scholar and Christian has gone into glory with the Father in Heaven. Jaroslav Pelikan was 82 years of age when he passed away as a result of Lung Cancer. His profession at the end of his life was that of History Professor at Yale University. He had done much for the program and indeed, much for Christianity in general.

Pelikan grew up a Lutheran and in 1998 "converted" to Eastern Orthodoxy with his wife. He wrote many books that dealt with issues of Christian history and doctrine, including the monumental, five volume work "The Christian Tradition" which covers the history of doctrine from 100AD-this century.

His acute mind and writing will be missed by those who have been introduced to his works.
