[With great sadness, we announce that Father Robert Crouse died on Saturday, January 15, 2011, at his residence in Crousetown, Nova Scotia. This Webpage will be maintained as a permanent tribute to him and as a way of making his sermons and other writings known.]

[rdcbigd.gif] R. Robert Crouse is a noted Patristic and Medieval scholar, and a teacher and priest in the Anglican Church of Canada. Through his committment to the texts of our spiritual and intellectual tradition, Father Crouse has instilled a deep love of learning in generations of students. He is also a noted priest and spiritual guide, a bulwark of orthodox faith, and has even been described as "the conscience of the Canadian Church". His passion is the poet/ theologian Dante Alighieri (1265-1321).

This webpage has been produced by his students in affectionate tribute, and as a means by which his writings, both academic and pastoral, might become more easily available. We hope you will find it helpful.
