Professor Morwenna Ludlow

I teach and conduct research in historical theology.  That is, I am a scholar of the history of Christian thought (with a particular focus on the early church: 100-500 CE) but I also write about the reception of early theology by modern thinkers and I am very interested in the implications of early theology for the world today.

In particular, I have written extensively on the fourth-century Cappadocian theologian, Gregory of Nyssa. My last monograph, Gregory of Nyssa, Ancient and Post-Modern focussed on the reception, use and abuse of Gregory by modern writers.
