My New Position

Many readers of this blog will know that for many years I have been Dean of the Ecumenical Institute of Theology and Professor of Sacred Scripture at St. Mary’s Seminary & University in Baltimore, Maryland, USA.

I will step down from the Dean’s position at the end of this academic year (May 2012) to accept my new appointment at St. Marys to the Raymond E. Brown Chair in Biblical Studies and Theology.

Raymond Brown (1928-1998), probably the most prominent American Catholic New Testament scholar of the 20th century, began his teaching career at St. Mary’s. The chair was established by the U.S. Province of the Society of St. Sulpice, which owns and operates St. Mary’s Seminary and of which Fr. Brown was a member.

The new position will relieve me of all administrative duties and give me more time for research and writing.

The announcement about this appointment may be found here.
