With the Society of Jesus and the Boston College community, we mourn the passing of Daniel J. Harrington, S.J. who, at the age of 73, lost his battle with cancer on February 7, 2014. An active member of CBA since 1970, Dan served as the CBA President (1985-86) and more recently as the Chair of the CBA Board of Trustees (2009-2013).
CBA member Frank J. Matera offered his reflections on Dan's life and work in America magazine. [Click here for the article]
Dan entered the Society of Jesus in 1958. While in the juniorate, he was encouraged to study Scripture and was tutored in Hebrew by Fr. John J. Collins, S.J., then editor of New Testament Abstracts.
While studying Ancient Near Eastern languages at Harvard, Dan worked with Professor John Strugnell. Dan was ordained in 1971. The following year he joined the faculty of Weston Jesuit School of Theology (currently Boston College School of Theology and Ministry) and became editor of New Testament Abstracts, a role he held until his death. The author of over 60 books, Dan also wrote “The Word” column for America magazine for three years.
In November 2013, Dan announced that 2013-14 was to be his final year of teaching. Rev. James Martin, SJ, in a tribute, presented Dan as “Clear, patient, kind. Generous, friendly, mild. Prayerful, faithful, hardworking. The model Jesuit, to my mind.”
May Dan rest in peace and rise in glory with the saints at the coming of our Lord.
