Romano Guardini (1885-1968)—Italian-born German priest—was one of the greatest Catholic minds of the 20th century. He helped shape Catholic theology between the two world wars and after, as well as the thinking of many non-Catholics of the period. He contributed to the Liturgical Movement and influenced the reforms of the Second Vatican Council. His legacy continues to be felt through Pope Benedict, who studied with him, and Pope Francis, who researched Guardini's work as part of his graduate study. In the classic work The End of the Modern World Guardini presents a historical, philosophical, and theological inquiry into the nature of the modern age.
