Profile
Alexander R. Titus is a PhD candidate at Princeton Theological Seminary in the Department of History & Ecumenics, concentrating in church history. He earned his BA in classics from the University of Oregon and his MA and ThM from St. Vladimir's Orthodox Theological Seminary in New York. His research interests center on the reception of patristic materials in the Middle Ages, especially the development of the mystical-contemplative and monastic traditions both in the Byzantine East and Latin West. Currently, his focus is on the use of the Dionysian corpus in the Byzantine Hesychast Controversy, especially in the writings of Gregory Palamas. He is also working on a complete English translation of Palamas' Triads, to be published by St. Vladimir's Seminary Press. Alexander is a member of the North American Patristics Society (NAPS), the Byzantine Studies Association of North America (BSANA), and the Friends of Mount Athos (FoMA). He lives in Princeton, N.J., with his wife, son, and foster son. He and his family belong to the Russian Orthodox Church Outside of Russia (ROCOR).
