Bruno Forte

Bruno Forte (born August 1, 1949) is an Italian theologian and ecclesiastic, currently Archbishop of Chieti-Vasto.


Archbishop Forte was born in Naples. He was ordained a priest on 18 April 1973. He was called "the most famous Italian theologian in Italy" and is seen as more progressive than Cardinal Ratzinger. He was appointed as Archbishop of Chieti-Vasto by Pope John Paul II on 26 June 2004. He was ordained bishop by Joseph Cardinal Ratzinger (now Pope Benedict XVI) on September 8, 2004.

After the election of Pope Benedict XVI Forte was seen as a possible successor to become Prefect of the Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith, before William Cardinal Levada was chosen.

He is widely seen as a possible PopeFact|date=February 2007, for this to happen (following traditional precedent) Archbishop Forte would need to be created a Cardinal, however any male Catholic is eligible.

After the tomb of Jesus was supposedly uncovered by James Cameron Archbishop Forte said that "there are many such tombs in the territory of the Holy Land. Hence, there is nothing new in this revelation." He went on to say that "In fact, the thesis launched is that if Jesus is buried there with his family, then the resurrection would be no more than an invention of his disciples." []
