Professor Denis Edwards - School of Theology (Faculty of Theology and Philosophy)

Fully accredited supervisor - Can supervise as principal supervisor


I taught theology at Flinders University in Adelaide before joining ACU at the beginning of 2014. Adelaide has always been my home, and I am a priest of the archdiocese, attached to Tranmere parish. My post-graduate studies were at Fordham in New York and The Catholic University of America in Washington DC, where my doctoral supervisor was Avery Dulles, and my dissertation was on the dynamics in faith in John of the Cross and Karl Rahner. In recent years I have taught mainly in Christology, Trinity and some ecclesiology. In the light of evolutionary science, and because of the ecological crisis we face, I have been exploring a theology of the natural world and trying to ground it in the heart of Christian faith.
