We would like to pay tribute to Gabriel Vahanian, who passed away last week at the age of 85. Educated at the Lycée Français de Valence and the Princteon Theological Seminary, Vahanian had long tenures at Syrcause University and the University of Strasbourg and was a founding member of the American Academy of Religion. His book The Death of God: The Culture of Our Post-Christian Era was one of the most influential postwar theological texts. The University of Virginia Press was proud to publish his book Praise of the Secular in 2008.
