Ratzinger at Tübingen

A while ago, Whispers posted a pointer to a story from the English edition of 30 giorni on the time the then-Ratzinger spent at the University of Tübingen. I finally had a chance to take a breath today and read the story. It's a very unique look at a time in Benedict's life that was very formational, some would suggest transformational. You can see bits and pieces of the Benedict we have come to know pushing their way up to the surface and you are not remotely surprised to see that he had upwards of 400 students pushing to get into his lectures. The article is a great read, and very insightful. As a blogger is wont to say, "Go! Read!"
