Mathew N. Schmalz, associate professor of religious studies at the College of the Holy Cross, has been selected as a contributor to Crux, the Boston Globe’s new stand-alone site on Catholicism, which launched Sept. 2.

“Crux will be a website devoted to covering the institution of the Roman Catholic Church with focus on how the words and actions of Pope Francis affect Catholics worldwide,” says Teresa Hanafin, editor of Crux. “ It plans to explore the practices and challenges of leading a Catholic life, publishing a wide range of thoughts and opinions of Catholics and others.”

Staff for the site include well-known Vatican expert John L. Allen Jr., associate editor at the Boston Globe and Crux; longtime Boston Herald columnist Margery Egan, who will be the site’s spirituality columnist; Inés San Martín, an Argentinian journalist who will report from the Vatican; Michael O’Loughlin, a Yale Divinity School graduate who will be the site’s national reporter; and Web producer Christina Reinwald.

Schmalz teaching and scholarship focus on Roman Catholicism and Modern Religious Movements.  His work has appeared in numerous journals and anthologies, including: The History of Religions, Method and Theory in the Study of Religion, Religion, The Religious Studies Review, and America’s Best Spiritual Writing. He is co-editor of Engaging South Asian Religions: Boundaries, Appropriations, and Resistances (SUNY Press, 2010), and is on the editorial board of the Journal of Christian Higher Education and the Catholic theological journal Asian Horizons.

Schmalz has published opinion pieces in the Washington Post, Commonweal Magazine, The National Catholic Reporter, the Huffington Post, and has provided expert commentary to USA Today, The New York Times, the Washington Post, ABC’s Good Morning America, The Boston Globe, NPR, CNBC, MSNBC, and U.S. News & World Report, among others.  Schmalz was quoted in more than 500 media outlets across the country in 2013-2014.
