Jaroslav Pelikan, the leading scholar of the history of Christianity and long-time Sterling Professor of History at Yale, has died. He was 82. Professor Pelikan was born in Akron, Ohio, in 1923. He grew up in a multi-lingual family and spoke Slovak, English, German, and Serbian, and could read Latin, Greek, Hebrew and Russian. By the time he was 23 years old he had already received his Ph.D. from the University of Chicago. He published his first book by the time he was 30, and began a 50-year teaching career, landing at Yale in 1962.
