Cardinal Urbano Navarrete CortÚs
Birth: May 25, 1920
Death: Nov. 22, 2010
Rome
Provincia di Roma
Lazio, Italy

Roman Catholic Cardinal. He was a longtime canon lawyer and professor. Raised in an agricultural family divided by the Spanish Civil War, he joined the Society of Jesus (Jesuits) in 1937; after earning degrees in philosophy and theology, he obtained a doctorate in canon law with a specialty in marriage law. Ordained a Priest in 1952, he assumed a faculty position at Pontifical Gregorian University in Rome where he was professor and dean of Canon Law until becoming Rector of the school in 1980. A prolific writer (he published around 150 articles) and respected authority in his field, he was created Cardinal by Pope Benedict XVI in 2007. The Cardinal died of the effects of advanced age. (bio by: Bob Hufford)
