Augustine J. Curley, O.S.B.

Adjunct Professor of Theology
School of Theology

I am a Benedictine monk of Newark Abbey who serves the community as prior and archivist. I also teach in our high school, St. Benedict's Prep.

While my Ph.D. is in philosophy, lately I have been doing a lot of research and writing on the history of the Catholic Church in New Jersey. With both the 150th anniversary of the founding of St. Benedict's Prep and the 50th anniversary of the re-establishment of the abbey in Newark as an independent abbey being celebrated in 2018, I will be helping to document this history.

I have been a member of the New Jersey Catholic Historical Commission for more than 25 years, and I am just finishing up a term on the Executive Committee of the American Catholic Historical Association.
