(CAMBRIDGE, Mass.) – Rev. Peter J. Gomes has died at age 68. Rev. Gomes, the Plummer Professor of Christian Morals and Pusey Minister in the Memorial Church at Harvard University, and an "important spiritual voice for justice and tolerance," passed away on Feb. 28.
"We are deeply saddened by this loss," said Harvard President Drew Faust. "For 40 years, he has served Harvard as a teacher in the fullest sense — a scholar, a mentor, one of the great preachers of our generation, and a living symbol of courage and conviction."
