Regis Professor John Dadosky Receives Book Award

Dr. John Dadosky, Professor of Theology and Philosophy at Regis College, has received the 2019 New Mexico/Arizona Book Award in Arts for his recent work published by the University of New Mexico Press: Image to Insight: The Art of William Hart McNichols. This news was announced at the annual awards banquet on November 9.

 

From the publisher: “Iconography is undergoing a revival in twenty-first-century American Catholicism. William Hart McNichols, who paints in his studio in New Mexico, is one of the most popular iconographers of this renaissance, and this book comprises a selection of his icons and sacred images. The book presents images of holy women and holy men as well as images of Mary and Jesus. Philosopher and theologian John D. Dadosky introduces each piece and demonstrates how McNichols’s paintings communicate sacred stories as well as mark significant moments in the artist’s personal development.”

 

Prof. Dadosky received his S.T.L. from Regis College (1999), Ph.D. from the University of St. Michael’s College (2001); and S.T.D. from Regis College (2004). He joined the faculty in July 2001 and teaches systematic theology and philosophy. He is currently the Treasurer to the Board of Catholic Theological Society of America and Treasurer of the American Theological Society.
