Hodie honoramus collegam praeclarum egregiumque doctissimumque, fecundissimum cogitationibus scriptisque, cuius opera gravissima, monumenta aere perenniora,1 nostrum intellectum de serioribus annis antiquitatis classicae transformaverunt. Alumnus urbis notabilis ob progressionem prosperitatemque,2 adeptus gradum Baccalaurei Artium, summa cum laude, apud universitatem redigentem in memoriam verba augurantia signum victoria,3 iter fecit ad illum fundum quo ventus libertatis aspirat ut gradus Magistri Artium Doctorisque Philosophiae mereretur.4 Annos triginta docuit in urbe plena iustitiae omnibus,5 apud universitatem colentem deum sicut lucem,6 pariens inspiransque investigationes luculentas. Nostrae societati praesedit magna cum cura, multa cum reverentia, maxima plurimaque cum liberalitate laboris temporisque. Plaudamus igitur William Klingshirn. [End Page 554]

Footnotes

Today we honor a distinguished, outstanding, and most learned colleague, most prolific in ideas and publications, whose extremely important studies, bound to endure for generations, have drastically changed our understanding of late antiquity. A Cleveland native, after receiving his B.A. with highest distinction from the College of the Holy Cross, he travelled to Stanford University for his M.A. and Ph.D. degrees. For thirty years he has taught at the Catholic University of America in Washington, DC, producing and inspiring brilliant research. In serving as president of our association he evinced great sensitivity and much respect in dealing with others, and gave immense, boundless generosity of effort and time to its collegial management. Let us thus applaud William Klingshirn.
