He completed a B.S. and M.A. at the University of Michigan, an M.A. at the Catholic University of America, and a S.T.L. and Ph.D. at the Pontifical Gregorian University. He formerly taught philosophy and Latin at Sacred Heart Major Seminary in Detroit, Michigan. His study of medieval philosophy led to a passion for Latin, which he now teaches at the Paideia Institute for Humanistic Study. Monsignor Gallagher is the editor of the Values in Italian Philosophy series and a regular contributor to the Philosophy and Popular Culture series. His articles have appeared in such journals as Postgraduate Journal of Aesthetics, Josephinum Journal of Theology, Sacred Architecture Journal, Journal for Christian Theological Research, Fellowship of Catholic Scholars Quarterly, Maritain Studies, The Latin Americanist, Social Justice Review, as well as various collected volumes. He is the translator of Vittorio Possenti’s Nihilism and Metaphysics: The Third Voyage (SUNY Press, 2014). Monsignor Gallagher’s latest activities focus on teaching and writing Latin according to the method of his predecessor in the Office of Latin Letters, Fr. Reginald Foster, O.C.D., a mission Gallagher shares with his colleagues at the Paideia Institute for Humanistic Study.
