Associate Professor of Undergraduate Theology

Ellen Scully specializes in early Christianity with a research focus on Latin Patristics in the 3rd through 5th centuries. Her areas of concentration include early Christian soteriology, Trinitarian theology, eschatology, and Christology, with a specialization in the thought of Hilary of Poitiers and Augustine. Her recent book, Physicalist Soteriology in Hilary of Poitiers (Brill, 2015) has paved the way to a larger project in which she seeks to categorize and clarify different early Christian soteriological models with a particular emphasis on defining the "physical" or "mystical" model of redemption through a study of its main proponents: Hilary of Poitiers, Marius Victorinus, Athanasius, Gregory of Nyssa, and Cyril of Alexandria.
