RIP Sean McEvenue

Hello, all. The Lonergan Research Institute today received the sad news that Prof. Sean McEvenue, emeritus at Concordia University (Montreal), has passed away. Prof. McEvenue worked in the area of Lonergan and scripture, and his contributions in regard specifically to Old Testament studies have helped to fill a significant lacuna. A few of his more significant works include

Sean McEvenue and Ben F. Meyer, eds. Lonergan's Hermeneutics: Its Development and Application. Washington, DC: The Catholic University of America Press, 1989.

Sean McEvenue. Interpreting the Pentateuch. Collegeville, MN: The Liturgical Press, 1990.

Sean McEvenue. Interpretation and Bible: Essays on Truth in Literature. Collegeville, MN: The Liturgical Press, 1994.

Rest in peace, Prof. McEvenue.
