Christian Ceplecha, O.S.B., of St. Procopius Abbey and Benedictine University,lisle, Illinois, died suddenly on May 29,2002. He was born on July 14,1927, in Berwyn, Illinois, professed vows as a monk of St. Procopius Abbey in 1947, and was ordained to the priesthood in 1953. He then began full-time studies in modern European history at the Catholic University of America. Having written a dissertation on "The Historical Thought of Jose Ortega y Gasset" under the direction of Friedrich Engel-Janosi, he received the doctorate in 1957. After he returned to Lisle, he spent the remainder of his life in service to his monastic community in a variety of capacities. He taught at St. Procopius (later Illinois Benedictine) College until 1990, serving for many years as chairman of the Department of History. From the late 1980's onwards, though ever more limited by poor health, Father Ceplecha spent a good deal of time sorting and organizing the archives of both St. Procopius Abbey and Benedictine University.
