Thomas Berry

Born: November 9, 1914

Died: June 1, 2009 (Age 94)

Thomas Berry was a cultural historian and scholar of the world’s religions, especially Asian traditions. Later as he studied Earth history and evolution, he called himself a “geologian.” He rejected the label “theologian” or “ecotheologian” as too narrow and not descriptive of his cultural studies in history of religions. He was drawn early on to respond to the growing ecological and climate crisis and proposed the need for a deep understanding of the history and functioning of the evolving universe; a necessary inspiration and guide for our own effective functioning as individuals and as a species.
