Daniel J. Harrington Videos

Daniel J. Harrington, a great Jesuit priest and scholar, passed away earlier this week. I did not know him, but everything I have read about him as a man of God speaks for itself. Both his scholarship and his service to the church were top-notch.

There are some really good tributes to Fr. Harrington on the net, especially this one in America: The National Catholic Review.

In light of this, I was able to locate a couple of videos on the Boston College website, where Harrington served as Professor of New Testament. Here is the first, entitled: "Prophets and Apostles: Vocations in the Scriptures." The second is entitled: "Introducing the Bible Today: Challenges and Opportunities." The latter is a lecture Harrington delivers a part of along with Richard J. Clifford, S.J. and Pheme Perkins.
