Research Interests: Biblical Theology Christology

monasticism and asceticism the Apostolic Fathers
Thomas Aquinas Mariology (study of Mary, the Virgin Mother)
Classes taught:
Theo105: Sacred Scripture

One focal point of my research has been the Biblical hermeneutics in early Christianity (New Testament authors and Church Fathers), especially their spiritual exegesis of Scripture and readings that harmonize both Old and New. My primary focus is Maximus the Confessor and Maximus’s interpretation of Scripture and the Fathers in the monothelite heresy. In my dissertation, I have been exploring more thoroughly Maximus’s philosophy of nature and its place in his thought, whether Trinitarian, Christological, or soteriological. I have published or forthcoming several articles, and I have an edited book in production with CUA Press on the Fathers of the Church and the capital vices (forthcoming, spring 2018). I am also co-editing a book on patristic spirituality, a collection of essays on the ascent to God.”
