Anglican cleric, German laymen to receive Ratzinger Prizes for theological work

Catholic World News - June 21, 2013

An Anglican cleric and a German lay theologian have been named the 2013 recipients of the Ratzinger Prize, established in 2010 to honor scholars whose academic work addresses the fundamental theological issues explored in the work of Pope Benedict XVI.

Rev. Richard Burridge, the dean of King’s College in London, will be the first non-Catholic to receive the Ratzinger Prize. In announcing the award Cardinal Camillo Ruini said that Burridge is “definitely an eminent figure in the field of Biblical studies” whose work places Jesus of Nazareth as clearly the central figure in the Gospels.

Christian Schaller, the other recipient, is deputy director of the Pope Benedict XVI Institute in Regensburg, Germany. Cardinal Ruini said that he is being honored “not only for his contribution to theological studies but also in recognition of the role he is carrying out in the publication of Joseph Ratzinger's complete works.”

The Ratzinger Prizes will be formally awarded during a symposium sponsored by the Ratzinger Foundation, to be held in October at the Pontifical Lateran University.
