He formerly taught philosophy and Latin at Sacred Heart Major Seminary in Detroit, Michigan.

Monsignor Gallagher is the editor of the Values in Italian Philosophy series and a regular contributor to the Philosophy and Popular Culture series. His articles have appeared in such journals as Postgraduate Journal of Aesthetics, Josephinum Journal of Theology, Sacred Architecture Journal, Journal for Christian Theological Research, Fellowship of Catholic Scholars Quarterly, Maritain Studies, The Latin Americanist, Social Justice Review, as well as various collected volumes. He is the translator of Vittorio Possenti’s Nihilism and Metaphysics: The Third Voyage (SUNY Press, 2014).
