The Rev. Khaled Anatolios, Ph.D. is the John A. O'Brien Professor of Theology at the University of Notre Dame. Father Khaled, a priest of the Melkite Greek Catholic Church, is interested in all aspects of the theology of the early Church, with special emphases on the Trinitarian, Christological, and soteriological doctrines of the Greek fathers and Augustine; early Christian biblical exegesis; and the development of theological methodology in patristic and medieval theology. He has published on a variety of early Christian theologians including Irenaeus, Origen, Athanasius, Augustine, and Gregory of Nyssa. A particular focus of his work is the engagement between early Christian theological reflection and contemporary theological concerns. His published books include Deification through the Cross: An Eastern Christian Theology of Salvation (Eerdmans, 2020), Retrieving Nicaea: The Development and Meaning of Trinitarian Doctrine (Baker Academic, 2011 & 2018), and Athanasius: The Coherence of his Thought (Routledge, 1998 & 2004).
