Dr. Zachary Guiliano is an associate editor of The Living Church, and editor of Covenant. A collection of his posts may be found here.
His research focuses on the spiritual interpretation of Scripture in the late patristic period and early middle ages. His dissertation examined the early history and manuscripts of the homiliary of Paul the Deacon, an anthology of patristic homilies and sermons, commissioned and authorized by Charlemagne for use in the Daily Office. It became one of the most widely-used books in the Middle Ages and was a component part of the Roman Breviary.
Zachary completed his B.A. in Biblical Studies at Evangel University, his M.Div. at Harvard Divinity School, and his Ph.D. in History at the University of Cambridge, where he was a Gates Cambridge Scholar. He is the author of various articles, short essays, and reviews, and co-editor of two volumes in the new Studies in Episcopal and Anglican Theology series.
He and his wife, Melissa, are natives of Peoria, Illinois, that most normal of American towns. They made their way to Anglicanism via a long pilgrimage through various Christian denominations, a process that gave them a healthy regard for ecumenism, a love for good liturgy, and a significant appetite for theological discussion. They are, as well, studied practitioners of the culinary arts.
