I am a first year PhD student in Christian Theology at the University of Cambridge. My thesis explores the relationship between the doctrines of divine simplicity and the Trinity, with special attention to the revisionary metaphysics of Robert W Jenson. I am an adjunct instructor for Southern Nazarene University (Bethany, OK, USA). I am interested in Christian and Platonic metaphysics, particularly in participation and the analogia entis. I am also interested in theological aesthetics, the theology of Hans Urs von Balthasar, the theology of sanctification, and theological epistemology.

I am currently an Assistant Professor of Theology at Hanover College, in southern Indiana. My research is concerned with the intellectual history of Christianity, and the secular afterlives of theological concepts. I am interested in both the erasures and the endurances of the theological within secular frames of thought. And I am especially interested in how these traces of the theological have influenced the way we think about the natural world, other creatures, our mortal bodies (and their eventual destinies). My current book project, Creature Feeling: Power and Affect in Creaturely Life examines the figure of the creature in theological, and extra-theological, texts.

MemberVictoria Lorrimar

My research explores theologies of humans as co-creators as a response to the prospect of enhancing human nature through technology. I examine several co-creation theologies in light of their underlying epistemologies, and investigate whether a greater recognition of the role of the imagination may offer a robust theological anthropology for engaging these questions of the human future.

I have a PhD in Theology from Wycliffe College/University of St. Michael’s College in the University of Toronto. My main academic interests are at the intersection of patristic exegesis and theology, sacramentology, and modern systematic theology. My revised dissertation is published by Lexington Books/Fortress Academic; in it, I work on recovering the significance of the sacraments for the way Protestants “do” theology, arguing for an interdependence of the sacraments, Scripture, Christology, and ecclesiology.
