The Rev. Christopher Beeley will become director of the Anglican Episcopal House of Studies at Duke Divinity School next July. He will also serve as professor of theology and the Jack and Barbara Bovender Professor of Anglican Episcopal Studies and Ministry.
“We are delighted to welcome Christopher Beeley to Duke,” said Elaine Heath, dean of Duke Divinity School. “Dr. Beeley’s interdisciplinary expertise in early Christianity bridges the gap between historical and theological studies, with an increasing focus in constructive theology. His background as a clinical psychologist provides additional remarkable strength to our students and community.”
Beeley is Walter H. Gray Associate Professor of Anglican Studies and Patristics at Yale University and teaches early Christian theology and history and modern Anglican tradition.
He is the author of Leading God’s People: Wisdom from the Early Church for Today (Eerdmans, 2012), The Unity of Christ: Continuity and Conflict in Patristic Tradition (Yale University Press, 2012), and Gregory of Nazianzus on the Trinity and the Knowledge of God (Oxford University Press, 2008), which was the winner of a John Templeton Award for Theological Promise.
