Daniel horan

Daniel P. Horan, OFM is a America magazine.

He has written extensively on Franciscan theology, philosophy and spirituality[4] as well as given lectures and delivered academic papers (in both the UK and the US) on the theological and social significance of the work of Thomas Merton.[5] He has also given workshops and delivered lectures on the intersection of the Millennial Generation and spirituality.[6] His current work focuses on postmodern thought and the use of medieval franciscan thinkers like John Duns Scotus as well as the authentic retrieval of their thought for contemporary theological inquiry; the life, work and thought of Thomas Merton; and contemporary systematic and constructive theologies.


Horan entered the Franciscans as a postulant for Holy Name Province in July 2005 and entered the Novitiate the following year after which he professed his first vows in 2007. He professed his Solemn Vows in the Order of Friars Minor in August 2011 and was ordained to the diaconate in the Roman Catholic Church in September 2011. He was ordained a priest by Cardinal Theodore McCarrick on 19 May 2012 in Silver Spring, MD.

Horan is the author of several books


Horan seems to have focused his research on the contemporary application of medieval Franciscan thinkers. He has published articles on Bonaventure, John Duns Scotus, Francis of Assisi, and Clare of Assisi, among others, in publications such as Review for Religious, The Downside Review, Worship, New Blackfriars, The Heythrop Journal, The Cord, and Spiritual Life.[15] His work on Thomas Merton has also resulted in publications in both the United Kingdom and in the US.[16] He has delivered lectures, workshops and academic papers [17] in both the US and Europe on Merton - which has received some attention.[18] Horan is also interested in contemporary theological movements, with particular attention paid to the Radical Orthodoxy movement that originated in the UK. He is a highly sought-after speaker, who lectures around the United States.[19]
