Author: Arts and Letters


Rev. Edward A. Malloy, C.S.C., president emeritus of the University of Notre Dame, is the creator and narrator of a new audio program now available for purchase from Now You Know Media.

“Terrorism, Counterterrorism and the Ethics of Warfare” offers insight into the experience and aftermath of the Sept. 11, 2001, terrorist attacks on the United States from a Christian perspective. Father Malloy examines the subject of terrorism and how to counter it in a practical and moral way. He also analyzes Christian thought on war and peace, pacifism, just war doctrine, terrorism’s history, religious terrorism, suicide attacks and torture.

A member of the Notre Dame faculty since 1974, Father Malloy served as the University’s 16th president from 1987 to 2005. As president, he enhanced Notre Dame’s reputation significantly as the University experienced substantial increases in faculty credentials, diversity and academic quality of the student body, financial resources and campus infrastructure.

Father Malloy earned bachelor’s and master’s degrees in English from Notre Dame in 1963 and 1967, and a second master’s degree, in theology, in 1969. After his ordination in 1970, he earned a doctorate of Christian ethics from Vanderbilt University. Father Malloy remains a full professor in the theology department and has published six books and more than 50 articles.
