Mr. Anthony Valle, Adjunct Professor of Theology at Ave Maria University, has been awarded an academic fellowship by the Fondazione Vaticana Joseph Ratzinger Benedetto XVI. The Vatican Foundation was started by Pope Benedict XVI to promote the knowledge and study of theology, to organize and conduct conferences of high cultural and scientific value, and to award scholars who have distinguished themselves for outstanding achievements in theological research.
Professor Valle, a graduate of the University of Notre Dame (B.A.) and Columbia University (M.A.), is a candidate for the S.T.D degree in dogmatic theology at the Pontificia Università della Santa Croce in Rome and his doctoral dissertation deals with Joseph Ratzinger’s Logos doctrine. His research interests include Christology-soteriology and ascetical-mystical theology.
