More About the Author

Paul L. Gavrilyuk holds the Aquinas Chair in Theology and Philosophy at the Theology Department of the University of St. Thomas in Saint Paul, Minnesota. Born in Kiev, Ukraine, he was one of the first scholars from the former Soviet Union to come to the United States to study theology. He received his doctorate in historical theology from the Graduate Program in Religious Studies at Southern Methodist University in 2001. His dissertation became a book, The Suffering of the Impassible God: The Dialectics of Patristic Thought, published by Oxford University Press in 2004 and subsequently translated into Spanish, Romanian and Brasilian Portuguese. The book addresses the issue of God's involvement in human suffering, especially as manifested by Christ in the incarnation.

An Eastern Orthodox theologian and historian, Gavrilyuk specializes in early Christian theology and Russian religious thought. His recent monograph, Georges Florovsky and the Russian Religious Renaissance was published by Oxford University Press in 2013. The monograph offers a new narrative of twentieth-century Russian Orthodox theology, treating such figures as Pavel Florensky, Sergius Bulgakov, Nicholas Berdyaev, Vladimir Lossky and Alexander Schmemann as Georges Florovsky's interlocutors. The book's context, content and ecumenical import are discussed in the following brief interview:

Gavrilyuk is also an editor of two books, including The Spiritual Senses: Perceiving God in Western Christianity, co-edited with Sarah Coakley and published by Cambridge University Press in 2012. The volume traces the historical development of the idea of spiritual perception from Origen in the third century to Hans Urs von Balthasar and William Alston in the twentieth.

An internationally recognized scholar and teacher, Dr. Gavrilyuk has had speaking engagements or taught courses in the following countries: Australia, Belgium, Canada, Costa Rica, France, Greece, Italy, Kazakhstan, Romania, Russia, Serbia, Turkey, Ukraine, the United Kingdom, and United States. His visiting teaching appointments include Harvard Divinity School (Cambridge, Massachusetts, USA), the Pontifical University of St Thomas Aquinas (Rome, Italy), Ukrainian Catholic University (Lviv, Ukraine), and Calvin College (Grand Rapids, Michigan, USA).
