Patrick Callahan

Patrick Callahan is the dean of Humanitas, a Catholic, liberal arts program for students at the University of Kansas, and Kowalski Chair in Catholic Thought at the St. Lawrence Institute for Faith and Culture. In addition to directing the program, he also teaches its Great Books component. He is husband to one wife––an increasingly rare phenomenon these days––and father to three children, Gabriel, Michael, & Raphael. He was raised in the Pine Barrens of New Jersey, studied Greek and Latin at the University of Dallas––where he found his faith and his wife, and went on to graduate studies in Classical Philology at Fordham University. In addition to normal academic work in all matters relating to Greek and Latin, Patrick has written on the poetry of C.S. Lewis and the 007 novels of Ian Fleming.
