Christopher Vogt is Associate Professor of Theology and Religious Studies, and a Senior Fellow of the Vincentian Center for Church and Society.  His most sustained area of research and publication has dealt with the Christian Ars Moriendi tradition, attempting to articulate what dying well might look like from a contemporary Christian point of view and how Christians should endeavor to accompany the dying and face death themselves.  He is the author of Patience, Compassion, Hope, and the Christian Art of Dying Well (Rowman and Littlefield, 2004).  He also does research focusing on social ethics and moral formation, with particular attention to the role churches and church-affiliated institutions play in cultivating virtue and shaping the public engagement of moral issues. 


In addition to teaching undergraduate and graduate courses in his own department, Dr. Vogt teaches regularly in St. John’s University’s interdisciplinary Master of Arts program in Global Development and Social Justice.  He serves on the North American Committee of Catholic Theological Ethics in the World Church, and on the editorial board of the Journal of Moral Theology.  He writes occasionally for
