Searching for the perfect font

I’m on a search for the ideal theological font.  That font will have several characteristics:

  • Serif, variable-width, academic quality: primarily for papers
  • Full unicode character set: I type a lot of Greek and a little Hebrew
  • Nothing that bothers me, viz.,
    • Getting smaller (Gentium, Times [New Roman]) or larger (Cardo) when italicized
    • Looking boring (Times [New Roman])
    • Lacking characters and substituting mis-matched letters from a “similar” font (Cambria, Book Antiqua, Garamond, Bookman Old Style)
    • Overly narrow characters or kerning

Recommendations, anyone?
