Alexander Titus is a PhD student at Princeton Theological Seminary in the History & Ecumenics department, concentrating in Church History. He received 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 primarily includes the early and high medieval periods, concentrating on the reception of Greek and Latin patristic materials (esp. the Dionysian and Augustinian traditions) in the European and Byzantine Middle Ages. He is particularly interested in exploring the ways in which the historical encounter between East and West might inform contemporary ecumenical dialogue. Alexander lives in Princeton, NJ, with his wife, Nina, and son, Edmund. He and his family belong to the Russian Orthodox Church Outside of Russia (ROCOR).
