'''Jean-Claude Larchet''' is a French Orthodox researcher who is one of the most important and interesting Orthodox scholars writing today. Born in 1949, Dr. Larchet holds doctorates in philosophy (1987) and theology (1994). He is one of the very few contemporary authors who is able seamlessly to combine rigorous scholarship with a vibrant sense of the inner life of the Church. Dr. Larchet converted to the [[Orthodox Church]] from the [[Roman Catholic Church]] at the age of 21.<ref>Fr. Felix Culpa.
