Joseph Ross Stevenson Professor of Church History (Roman Catholic), Princeton Theological Seminary

Kathleen McVey, Princeton Theological Seminary’s Joseph Ross Stevenson Professor of Church History, earned her Ph.D. from Harvard University, and has held fellowships at Dumbarton Oaks and the American School of Classical Studies in Athens. Her research interests center on the intellectual, spiritual, and social engagement of early Christians with their varied cultural contexts both within the Roman Empire and beyond its borders. Her courses include early Syriac Christianity and the rise of Islam, Christianity in Alexandria and Egypt, Christian women in the world of late antiquity, and Augustine and early Latin Christianity. A Roman Catholic, she has participated in two ongoing ecumenical consultations: the Pro Oriente dialogue among Syriac tradition churches, and the United Methodist Church’s Consultations on Orthodox and Wesleyan Spirituality. She is a founding member of the North American Syriac Symposium and serves on the editorial boards of the series Fathers of the Church, the Cambridge Dictionary of Christianity, and Hugoye: Journal of Syriac Studies.
