Francis Arinze (Author)

Raised in a mud-brick bungalow in Nigeria, Francis Arinze began his life in Eziowelle, in Anambra State, in Africa's most populous country. Arinze studied theology in Rome and in 1958 was ordained a priest. After ordination, Father Arinze remained in Rome where he earned a Master's degree in theology in 1959. The following year, he earned his Ph.D. in sacred theology, summa cum laude; his doctoral thesis on "Ibo Sacrifice as an Introduction to the Catechesis of Holy Mass" was the basis for his much-referenced, "Sacrifice in Ibo Religion," published in 1970. A principal advisor to Pope John Paul II, and a prominent leader of the Catholic church, Arinze was a highly-esteemed papabile for the 2005 papal election. Now as Cardinal Bishop of Velletri Segni, he continues to strive to improve interfaith communications and cultivate world peace.

  1. "Arinze encourages religious leaders to 'conscientize' their followers, as well as to foster the study of other religions."
