The CTSA remembers and prays for long standing member Denise L. Carmody who died at home today, March 15.
Eternal rest grant unto Denise, O Lord,
and let perpetual light shine upon her.
May Denise's soul and the souls of all the faithful departed,
through the mercy of God, rest in peace. Amen.
Denise Carmody was born in Baltimore, MD. She received an A.B. at the College of Notre Dame of Maryland (1958), and an M.A. at Boston College (1966). She had loved philosophy as an undergrad; in particular, questions about epistemology (how people know) led to an abiding interest in comparative religious studies. She pursued that interest by earning a Ph.D. in the philosophy of religion from Boston College in 1970. Denise has published over sixty books, including the 7th edition to Ways to the Center. Her research interests are Roman Catholicism and world religions. She retired in June, 2012.
