CARD. CAMILLO RUINI
"From my point of view Rémi Brague is a true philosopher and also a great historian of thought and culture. He brings theory and history and ties them together with the Christian and Catholic faith, deeply and without reservation.”

The other winner, theologian Brian Daley is 72 years old. He has done extensive research on dogmatic theology, by delving in the writings of the Church Fathers. For 18 years he has taught theology at Cambridge, Massachusetts and the University of Notre Dame.

CARD. CAMILLO RUINI
"Brian E. Daley is, therefore, a great historian of patristic theology, but also a man who is totally committed to the mission of the Church, so his exemplary scientific rigor meets his passion for the Gospel.”

This award is given by the Joseph Ratzinger Vatican Foundation, which recognizes the careers and scientific contributions of theologians. Aside from the recognition, each winner also receives 50,000 euros. Interestingly, organizers say future winners could include non Catholic theologians.
