Dr. Morrow teaches a wide range of courses in Catholic Theology at Immaculate Conception Seminary School of Theology, including The Theology of Pope Benedict XVI, The Theology of the Old Testament, The Eucharist, and Ecclesiology. His research focuses on the history of biblical interpretation and theological exegesis. He is particularly interested in the union between Catholic theology and Catholic biblical scholarship. The bulk of his current research pertains to the early modern and enlightenment political background to the rise of the historical critical method for studying the Bible in the university. He also is interested in traditional forms of Jewish and Christian biblical exegesis, and especially the important role the liturgy plays in developing a sacramental hermeneutic. He serves as a Senior Fellow of the St. Paul Center for Biblical Theology, and is an active member of La Société Internationale d’Études sur Alfred Loisy, the American Academy of Religion, the Society of Biblical Literature and the College Theology Society, among other professional organizations.
