SCU's Paul Crowley, S.J., Named Editor of Theological Studies Journal

SANTA CLARA, Calif., Nov. 11, 2014 — Santa Clara University religious studies and pastoral ministries professor Paul Crowley, S.J., who holds the Jesuit Community Professorship in Religious Studies, has been appointed the next editor of the journal Theological Studies, by its board of directors.

Fr. Crowley will follow David G. Schultenover, S.J. as editor and will assume his new duties on January 1, 2016. He will continue teaching at Santa Clara while he serves in this capacity.

“Fr. Crowley’s appointment as editor of this prestigious journal of theology is a great tribute to his abilities as a theologian, writer and teacher,” said Santa Clara University President Michael Engh, S.J. “At a time when theology is being shaped more and more by the lived experiences of all people, Fr. Crowley will bring to this appointment a deep awareness and professional rigor.”

Founded and sponsored by the U.S. Society of Jesus, Theological Studies is a Catholic scholarly journal that serves the Church and its mission by promoting a deeper understanding of the Christian faith through the publication of research in theological disciples. It is located at Marquette University, in Milwaukee, Wisconsin.

Through refereed articles and reviews of noteworthy books, the journal aims to recover and to help make accessible the riches of the theological tradition, and to present significant developments in current theology. It is published quarterly in English for an international readership.

Fr. Crowley is a native of Sacramento, Calif., and received a  B.A. from Stanford University, an M.A. from Columbia University, a Ph.D. from the Graduate Theological Union, and an S.T.L. (Licentiate of Sacred Theology) from the Jesuit School of Theology in Berkeley. His research focuses on the intersection of systematic theology with modern thought.
