David Gill, S.J.

With the exception of three years at Holy Cross and six as Director of the A&S Honors Program, Fr. David Gill '56 has been teaching Classics at Boston College since 1969. His favorite courses have been those that deal with matters of religion and ethics--Pagan, Jewish, and Christian--in the ancient world. In recent years he has been moonlighting as pastor of a multi-cultural inner city church in the Roxbury section of Boston.

Gills hobbies include reading Hebrew and being a political junkie.


Capstone course:

UN55201 A Spiritual Exercise
The course explores students' BC experience and hopes for the future in the areas of intellectual life, relationships, work, community, and spirituality. The course format is based loosely on the Spiritual Exercises of Ignatius of Loyola, which move from examination of one's life through consideration of possible future life choices to one's own choice of how best to live.
