Father Ernest L. Fortin, one of the nation's foremost thinkers in the fields of philosophy and theology, is professor of theology at Boston College, and the author and editor of numerous books on ancient and medieval philosophy and religion.
Ernest Fortin possesses that rare combination, found only in the greatest thinkers, of both immense learning and a playful intellect. His essays are grounded, but not confined, in tradition; they are scholarly, but not pedantic. They are eloquent testimony to the eros of the mind. -- Mary Ann Glendon, Learned Hand Professor of Law, Harvard University, former U.S. Ambassador to the Holy See
