Hans Küng (1928–2021) was a Swiss Roman Catholic priest, theologian, and author. He was appointed an expert theological advisor to the Second Vatican Council in 1962. Küng argued that peace among religions is the key to peace among peoples, and his Toward a Global Ethic: An Initial Declaration has been a major contribution to interreligious dialogue.
