Carey, Patrick W.
My interest both in the theology of the late-medieval period and in the history of Scriptural interpretation really came to life during my years of graduate study at Marquette University. Under the guidance of my advisor Professor Kenneth Hagen and other members of the Marquette faculty, my desire to investigate the ramifications for exegesis of nominalism grew during that time until it became the general area of my dissertation. It has continued as I have carried out the project of examining Wendelin Steinbach's commentary on Galatians. In the coming years I hope to expand my study of the writings of medieval theologians. That hope stems from my conviction that my understanding of the sixteenth-century Reformation can only grow as I gain a deeper and more accurate understanding of what had come before. But my hope to study medieval theology further also arises from my belief that that period still holds treasures which can enrich our theology today.
