Daniel MacLeod has been the Director of the Jesuit Centre for Catholic Studies since 2017. He has been teaching and doing research in the centre since 2014 and is proud to work in Canada’s largest Catholic Studies program.

He completed an undergraduate degree in History and English Literature at the University of Windsor and earned a PhD in History from the University of Guelph where he studied in the Centre for Scottish Studies.

His research examines Christianity in early-modern Scotland with a particular focus on Catholicism, the Society of Jesus, and religious understandings and uses of time in the period. In 2014 he edited Keeping the Kirk: Scottish Religion at Home and in the Diaspora and has published on Scottish conceptions of time in the Reformation-era, Scottish Jesuit St. John Ogilvie, and lay religious experiences in sixteenth and seventeenth-century Glasgow.
