Ph.D. Grants available for Research on Bernard and Origen

A proposed research project in England focuses on the theological anthropology of Bernard of Clairvaux (1090-1153). Bernard was firmly embedded in the Augustinian theological tradition, but Origen’s ideas also seem to have influenced Bernard’s views on human freedom, e.g., via his optimistic Christology and doctrine of justification. 

The project thus aims, first, to detect the influences of Origen on Bernard’s anthropology. Second, it will distil the impact of Bernard’s theology on later debates. Candidates should be willing to work at the Centre of Early Christianity and Its Reception at the University of Kent (England). Knowledge of Greek and Latin will be an advantage. Main supervisor will be Professor Dr. Karla Pollmann, who can be contacted for further information via k.f.l.pollmann@kent.ac.uk.
