Faculty of Divinity



I am a PhD candidate in Patristics/Late Antique Studies, researching questions of procedure and reception in the acts of the general church councils of the fifth century. I am particularly interested in the question of how conciliar 'consensus' was conceptualised and construed by individual bishops. My historical research seeks to provoke theological reflection on the nature and authority of the ecumenical councils of the early church. I hope that such research and reflection may open up opportunities for continued ecumenical dialogue between Chalcedonian and non-Chalcedonian traditions.
