Daniel J. Harrington, S.J. (RIP) (Skinner)

Daniel J HarringtonI have just learned of the passing of Dan Harrington, longtime professor of New Testament at Weston Jesuit School of Theology (now Boston College School of Theology and Ministry). A prolific author, Harrington was the editor of New Testament Abstracts since 1972 along with numerous other volumes, including the well-known Sacra Pagina commentary series. For more about Harrington’s passing along with reflections on his life, career, and service to the church, see this article from America.

  1. Even more than an erudite scholar of New Testament and Second Temple Judaism, Fr. Harrington was a man of G-d who pastorally cared about all those around him. He was a lamed-vavnik in this generation. I will miss him.

    1. Thank you for your kind words regarding my uncle, Dan Harrington. With you referring to him as a lamed-vavnik and Fr Martin calling him a Saint, I am so overwhelmed with pride to know how others, particularly his peers, saw him.

      John Harrington
