Biographical Note

Romano Guardini (1885-1968) was an Italian-born German Catholic priest, author, and academic. He was one of the most important figures in Catholic intellectual life in the 20th century. He was ordained a priest in 1910. He was a professor at the University of Berlin until the Nazis expelled him in 1939. His sermons, books, and popular classes won him worldwide acclaim. His works combine a keen thirst for God with a profound depth of thought and a delightful perfection of expression.
