Leopold Glueckert, a native of the Chicago area, is a Carmelite friar, professed in 1962 and ordained in 1968. A lifelong teacher, he has taught at Mount Carmel High School (Chicago) and Crespi High School (Encino, CA), where he also served as president. He has also taught History at Loyola, DePaul, Loyola-Marymount, and Lewis Universities. He joined the Union faculty in 2007.

His primary interest is in modern Europe, with concentration in Italy and the Mediterranean. Much of his research has focused on the last days of the Papal States and the pontificate of Pius IX. He has a special interest in Church-State issues and topics concerning the encounter between world cultures.

Since 1993, he has been the special historical consultant to Princess Cruises, charged with preparing port guides and informational literature. His writing and lecturing activity for that company has facilitated the passengers’ understanding of the historical and cultural values of over 300 cities, primarily in Europe, Africa, and Asia.
