Fr. William T. Miller, SJ, beloved professor of theology, dies at 74

Rev. William T. Miller, SJ, was born in Camden, NJ on July 4, 1941. He graduated from Bishop Eustace High School in Pennsauken, NJ and entered the Society of Jesus at the Novitiate of St. Isaac Jogues in Wernersville, PA in 1959. He received his BA from Loyola Seminary in Shrub Oak, NY and his M.Div from Woodstock College, NY. He was ordained a priest on June 3, 1972 and went on to receive a Masters in Hebrew from Catholic University and a Ph.D. in Old Testament Theology from the Union Theological Seminary in NY.

As a scholastic, Fr. Miller taught physics at St. Joseph’s Prep in Philadelphia, but following ordination, and having completed his studies in theology, began his many assignments teaching theology at St. Louis University, Regis University in Denver and Gonzaga University in Spokane. In 1994, he began a 12-year tenure at the Mount Angel Abbey, a Benedictine monastery in Oregon where he served as a professor of Latin and Greek, taught Old Testament Scripture, and was Formation Director for nine years.

Fr. Miller came to Baltimore in 2008 where he taught theology and scripture at St. Mary’s Seminary before serving as professor of theology at Loyola University Maryland for four years. He remained active, leading lectures and discussions on scripture until his death on June 13, 2016.
