Jaroslav Pelikan: Eminent Church Historian

Jaroslav Pelikan, Sterling Professor of History Emeritus at Yale University, died this weekend on 13 May 2006. Among his voluminous books, he is most famous for his monumental The Christian Tradition: A History of the Development of Doctrine. This five-volume work is perhaps the most significant survey of church history written in the 20th century. Several years ago Mark Noll wrote this brief biographical sketch of Pelikan for Christianity Today.
