.- In a new column to be published on Thursday, Vatican analyst Sandro Magister of the Italian weekly “L’Espresso” predicts important changes in the Roman Curia.

In his latest column, Magister says two key intellectuals will be respectively named to the posts of President of the Pontifical Council for Culture—replacing Cardinal Paul Poupard—and of Director of “L’Osservatore Romano,” taking the reins from Mario Agnes.

Magister describes the intellectual profile of each of the possible new appointments, pointing out that “with a Pope professor like Benedict XV, the time is now favorable at the Vatican for learned men in tune with him.”

The Vatican analyst says one man is an important Biblical scholar, while the other is a well-known academic of ancient literature.  He gives profiles on each candidate in his column, which can be found in English at http://chiesa.espresso.repubblica.it/index.jsp?eng=y.

In addition, Magister also announces the naming of an American Benedictine as the new President of the Pontifical Commission for Cultural Goods and Sacred Archeology.  Additionally, he reveals the identification of an important theologian as Director of Sacred Art and Music.
