Doctoral student of Pope Emeritus to lead Pontifical Theological Academy

Catholic World News - June 23, 2014

Pope Francis has named Father Réal Tremblay, a Canadian Redemptorist priest who completed his doctoral dissertation under the future Pope Benedict XVI, as the new president of the Pontifical Academy of Theology.

Father Tremblay, a consultor to the Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith, is professor emeritus at the Alphonsian Academy in Rome. He succeeds Father Manlio Sodi, a Salesian who has completed his five-year term as head of the academy.

The academy, founded in 1718, hosts a biennial symposium and publishes Itineraria, a collection of works by its members. In a 1999 apostolic letter, St. John Paul II revised the academy’s statutes, and in doing so stated that “the principal mission of theology today consists in promoting dialogue between Revelation and the doctrine of the faith and in offering an ever deeper understanding of it.”
