.- The Franciscan University of Steubenville has appointed author and professor Dr. Scott Hahn to an endowed chair named for the priest who pioneered the school's Catholic revival.
Hahn's reception of the Father Michael Scanlan Chair of Biblical Theology and the New Evangelization was announced May 12 during the school's 64th commencement ceremony by Father Terence Henry, TOR, who succeeded Fr. Scanlan as the school's president.
Through his work at Franciscan University, his scholarly research and publications, his popular writing and countless speaking engagements, Dr. Scott Hahn has done the very thing the Fathers of Vatican II called upon Catholic scholars to do, Fr. Henry said in his announcement.
This new appointment will aid him in his ongoing work in teaching sacred Scripture and the New Evangelization, which is so close to his heart.
A well-known convert from Protestantism to the Catholic Church, Hahn has taught classes on theology and Scripture at Franciscan University since 1990. He is the author of over 40 scholarly and popular books, and the founder and director of the St. Paul Center for Biblical Theology.
Hahn said he was deeply grateful and humbled by the honor of holding an endowed chair named after Father Michael Scanlan, one of my personal heroes in the faith, as well as a spiritual father and dear friend for over 20 years.
He praised the work of the priest, who revitalized the school formerly known as the College of Steubenville after taking over leadership during a troubled period in the 1970s. Fr. Scanlan, who retired in 2011, maintains the title of President Emeritus at the university.
For over a generation, Hahn said, Father Mike has shown us how to combine academic study and spiritual fervor in a way that changes lives our own and others and thus how to advance the New Evangelization, which is at the heart of the Churchs mission.
The endowment-supported position will allow Hahn to increase his teaching and mentoring activities on campus, and to develop online graduate courses, while continuing his schedule of speaking engagements and media appearances.
Congratulations to Scott Hahn on his new appointment. May our Lord continue to bless his ministry to the Catholic Church.

An Urgent Note >From Scott Hahn
Congratulations to Dr. Hahn!
What a Christian!
Best wishes to Dr. Hahn and family. He’s always so interesting! I just re-read “Hail, Holy Queen” last week because I was presenting an overview of Marian dogmas for my prayer group.
Amen to those sentiments!
Scott Hahn is one of my favorite and most illuminating (for me) authors/speakers/hosts/guests on EWTN programs, in books, CD's, etc.
Thank God for his wonderful service, and may God keep him in his loving care. (And may Scott never stray from doing the holy will of God.)
WOOOOOOT! God Bless Scott Hahn!! Someone once said that listening to Scott Hahn talk about the Bible was like trying to get a sip of water from a fire hydrant! :o)
He asked God for a sign on one day before he left a town on tour. He walked into Mall found out that they held mass in the basement(?). He walked into the chapel which had mass. Well after the mass he talked to the priest about the question from the book. He finds out its the author who is still living. A brusque old fashion priest in his late golden years.
It's been years I might be off on the accuracy. But if I remember that's the gist of it.
He repeated the anecdote in “Hail, Holy Queen.” The book in question was about the Assumption of Mary.
I bought that book on the mid lecture break. Some book. But no autograph. He had a scheduled flight back home for Sunday with family. I taped it on my Phone I listen too it twice at least since. Wonderful Christian person.
