Eminent vs Prominent

Both words may be used to describe someone who is renowned, but are these words really the same?

A clue: Someone may be prominent, but not necessarily eminent.

The difference between the two is that eminent refers to someone who is not just well-known, but also highly respected and qualified in his or her field of work.

Justin Bieber may be a prominent celebrity, but he may not necessarily be eminent unless he is also highly respected and qualified.
