Prof. Carole Fontaine named 2008-09 Henry Luce Fellow


Word has been received from the Association of Theological Schools that Dr. Carole Fontaine has been selected as one of seven scholars in the US to be a 2008-09 Henry Luce III Fellow in Theology. The program, one of the premiere fellowship programs for theological scholarship, recognizes excellence and creativity in its awardees’ work.

Dr. Fontaine’s study proposal is entitled The Gazelle, the Tree and the Goddess: Visual Theology in the Song of Songs, Biblical Israel and Today. The selection committee noted the creativity in the subject matter and the design.

The grant supports the recipient in a year-long study and then invites them to a special dinner and symposium to present their studies.

The program, which was begun in 1993, is supported by a grant from The Henry Luce Foundation, honoring the late Henry Luce III. Previous Andover Newton faculty members to be awarded Luce Fellowships were Dr. Mark Burrows and Dr. Sze-Kar Wan.
