Rev. John Gavin, S.J. Profiled in Holy Cross Magazine’s Fall Issue

November 1st, 2013 by 

A three-year member of the faculty, Rev. John Gavin, S.J., is thrilled with the support new faculty receive at Holy Cross, including special workshops, get-togethers and mentoring.

“From the start, you are being formed into an excellent teacher,” he says.

This year he takes a further step toward excellence through a junior research leave, an opportunity offered to tenure-track faculty to focus on professional research at full salary. Leaves are typically granted to assistant professors in the fall or spring semester of their third year of teaching. In the past five years, Holy Cross has underwritten 47 semester-long junior leaves.

With his focus on late ancient and early medieval Christianity, Fr. Gavin plans to write extensively during his time away from the classroom. Supported by both Holy Cross and the Jesuit Community, he will be able to undertake a yearlong leave, during which he will write a book on John Scottus Eriugena, an important intellectual and mystic during the later years of the Carolingian Renaissance in the 9th century.
