Ellen R. Scully, Ph.D., Assistant Professor of Undergraduate Theology, earned a B.A. from Mt. Holyoke College, an M.T.S. from The University of Notre Dame, and a Ph.D. from Marquette University. Her doctoral dissertation is titled “The Assumption of all Humanity in the Tractatus super Psalmos of Saint Hilary of Poitiers.” Dr. Scully specializes in the theology of the early Church. Her research focuses on soteriology, that is, on the way in which humans are saved in Jesus Christ.

Her current research centers on the soteriology and eschatology of Hilary of Poitiers and Augustine.
