Welcome to Dr. Pitre's Website!

"The study of the Sacred Page…
should be the very soul of Sacred Theology” (Vatican II, Dei Verbum 24)


Welcome to the official website of Dr. Brant Pitre! Dr. Pitre, Professor of Sacred Scripture at Notre Dame Seminary, in New Orleans, Louisiana, received his Ph.D. in New Testament and ancient Judaism from the University of Notre Dame, Indiana. Since then has spent his time teaching, writing, and giving lectures on the Bible and on the Jewish roots of Christianity. He is the author of a book, Jesus, the Tribulation, and the End of the Exile (Baker Academic, 2005) and another, Jesus and the Jewish Roots of the Eucharist (Doubleday, 2011). He is also the author of several CD and DVD Bible Study, exploring the Jewish roots of Scripture and the Catholic Faith.

This site has been established for anyone interested in the study of the Bible, the “Sacred Page” (sacra pagina). As the Second Vatican Council taught, the study of Sacred Scripture “should be the very soul of sacred theology.” And, as St. Jerome taught, “Ignorance of Scripture is ignorance of Christ.” Hence, the mission of this website is simple: to provide a place for all those who want to “put out into the deep” in the study of Sacred Scripture and Sacred Theology. Dr. Pitre engages in this study from a deeply Catholic perspective, but welcomes all who are interested in the study of the Bible.

In the days and weeks to come, Dr. Pitre will use this site to provide links to interesting articles and books, all of his favorite works of biblical theology, and, last but not least, his own audio and video Bible studies and books. In particular, Dr. Pitre's CD & DVD Bible studies are now available from www.CatholicProductions.com.

Dr. Pitre is also posting this site for anyone who may be interested in having him come to speak at a parish or conference about the Bible and Theology. If you would like to book him for an appearance, you can contact Catholic Productions directly for arrangements. In the meantime, many blessings be upon you and your families, as we always strive to "learn the surpassing knowledge of Jesus Christ by frequent reading of the Scriptures” (Dei Verbum 25).
