Chad R. Thralls, Ph.D.
Post-Doctoral Teaching Fellow
Chad Thralls agrees with Socrates that the unexamined life is not worth living.
I am a scholar of Christian Spirituality and Mysticism. My research interests address the phenomenon of religious experience. I am interested in the Christian spiritual classics, Christian mysticism, spiritual seeking in American religious history, spirituality and nature, and double religious belonging.
I have taught undergraduate and graduate courses on the History of Christian Spirituality, Christian Mysticism, Thomas Merton, Religion in America, Christian and Zen Meditation, and Religion and Nature.
