Congratulations to Francis X. Clooney, a frequent contributor to "In All Things," who has just been appointed as the director of Harvard Divinity School's Center for the Study of World Religions. Fr. Clooney joined the HDS faculty in 2005, as the Parkman Professor of Divinity and Professor of Comparative Theology, after teaching at Boston College since 1984. He served as acting director of the CSWR during the 2008 spring term. "Francis Clooney is arguably the world's leading scholar of comparative theology," said Dean William A. Graham in announcing the appointment. We're also happy to have him as a frequent blogger, too. Read the whole story here.
