Biography:

Patrick Gardner earned his BA in Philosophy and Theology from the University of Notre Dame and his MTS from Duke Divinity School. He recently completed his PhD in Systematic Theology from Notre Dame, where he also served as a Postdoctoral Teaching Scholar in the Theology Department. His research interests focus on developing Christian responses to the intellectual challenges of modern thought and culture. His dissertation, “Modern Pentecost: Henri de Lubac on Atheism and the Spiritual Posterity of Joachim of Fiore,” examines how these questions are approached in the theology of the French Catholic theologian, Henri de Lubac, especially in his writings on atheist humanism and twelfth-century apocalypticism. His future research will focus on constructing novel approaches to the problem of evil and its challenge to the meaning of Christian faith commitments.

Recent Publications:
“An Inhuman Humanism” in The T&T Clark Companion to Henri de Lubac (T&T Clark, forthcoming 2017).
“God Beyond and Between: Desmond, Przywara, and Catholic Metaphysics” in Desmond and Theology: The Donation of William Desmond to Theology (University of Notre Dame Press, forthcoming).
