The Joseph Ratzinger-Benedict XVI Vatican Foundation, established to promote studies in theology and philosophy, will award one of its two major prizes this year to U.S. Jesuit Father Brian Daley, a patristics expert and professor of theology at the University of Notre Dame.

The other prize winner is Remi Brague, a French professor of the philosophy of European religions at Ludwig-Maximilian University in Munich.

The two will receive their prize from Pope Benedict at the Vatican Oct. 20. Each award carries a 50,000 euro (about Cdn$63,4000) cash prize.
