RIP Henry Chadwick, Priest
The Very Rev. Henry Chadwick, an Anglican priest, professor, editor, translator and author whose historical voyages into early Christianity won praise for depth, insight and evenhandedness and helped shed light on modern religious problems, died Tuesday in Oxford, England. He was 87.
Fr. Chadwick was the author of the first book on the Patristric period that I ever read, and I first learned to love the Fathers through reading his works. Thank you, Father.
May Henry, priest, and all the faithful departed through the mercies of God rest in peace, and may light perpetual shine upon them. Amen.
