Born and raised in Bieruń Stary Archdiocese of Katowice into a family of workers, he joined in the Congregation of the Priests of the Sacred Heart of Jesus (Dehonians) in 1937, and was ordained priest on July 8, 1945, in Krakow. He began his studies at the Jagiellonian University of Krakow, then continuing them at the Catholic University of Lublin, from whom he obtained a doctorate in 1952. He held various posts within his religious congregation and in the academic world as a teacher and scholar. From 1947 to 1950, he was rector of the minor seminary of the Dehonians Fathers in Krakow-Plaszow and rector of the major seminary of the same congregation in Tarnów (1952 to 1958). From 1957 to 1962, he was director of the Theological College of the Dehonians. In 1958, Nagy became professor at the Catholic University of Lublin where in 1972 was appointed full professor and where he was deputy head of the Faculty of Theology. He participated to the ecumenical movement, and was a member of the Lutheran-Catholic Joint Commission, convened by the Secretariat for Promoting Christian Unity of the Holy See and the Lutheran World Federation (1973 to 1974). He became a member of the International Theological Commission and director of the "Ecumenical Theology" in the editorial to the Catholic University of Lublin. From 1983 to 1991, he was president of the Section of Fundamental Theology Professors at the Episcopal Commission for ecclesiastical studies. Since the beginning of his academic work, he devoted himself to the Church in all its aspects, in particular about the question of the credibility of the Catholic Church and its transformations after the Second Vatican Council. Nagy devoted a substantial part of his activity as a scholar at the ecumenical question, deepening in his works, the problem of the opening of the post-conciliar Church to other Christian denominations. He is considered as one of the pioneers of ecumenism in Poland. He dealt in numerous publications of the teachings of John Paul II of which was always a trusted collaborator. He was the author of many important publications including, "Cristo nella Chiesa. Abbozzo di ecclesiologia fondamentale", "La Chiesa sulle vie dell'unità" and "Il Papa di Cracovia".
