  1. I’m very sorry to hear this. May he rest in peace.

  2. Father Klingele says:

    While I never had Father Studer, OSB, for class (my last class being in Spring 2002) at the Augustinianum, I certainly heard much of him. His book, Trinity and Incarnation (English trans.) is outstanding for presenting the core of the Catholic Faith in its historical explication through Nicea and Chalcedon. His book neither oversimplifies important distinctions nor does it get lost in details/excursions. I imagine that he lectured in the same way: clear, precise, and distinct.

    Ora pro eo.
