Roger Haight (-) is an American Jesuit theologian.

He received his B.A. (1960) and the M.A. in Philosophy (1961) from Berchmans College, Cebu City, Philippines; his S.T.B. from Woodstock Collegemarker, Maryland (1967); the M.A. in Theology (1969) and the Ph.D. in Theology (1973) from the University of Chicagomarker; and the S.T.L. from the Jesuit School of Theology at Chicago.

In August 2000, Fr Haight, professor of theology at the Weston School of Theologymarker in Massachusetts, was relieved of his teaching duties and asked to respond to questions about his book Jesus Symbol of God (Orbis, 1999). The book had been the winner of the top prize in theology from the U.S. Catholic Press Association. He then taught at the Union Theological Seminary. In 2005, he wrote The Future of Christology.

The Vatican objected to Haight’s attempts to separate Christology from Greek philosophical concepts, specifically in relation to the formulation of the mystery of the Trinity, the interpretation of Christ’s divinity and the role of Jesus in salvation. The clarifications Haight provided in 2000 were judged unsatisfactory by the Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith, and in January 2001 the congregation proceeded to a formal investigation.

His writings have been defended by prominent Jesuits in the magazine Commonweal. Haight is the past president of the Catholic Theological Society of America.
