Piotr Małysz joined the faculty of Beeson Divinity School in 2011 and teaches church history and doctrine. His research interests lie at the intersection of historical and systematic theology, modern European intellectual history, philosophy, and social theory. Małysz is the author of Trinity, Freedom and Love: An Engagement with the Theology of Eberhard Jüngel (T&T Clark 2012), and co-editor of Luther Refracted: The Reformer’s Ecumenical Legacy (Fortress Press 2015). He has published articles in Modern Theology, Scottish Journal of Theology, International Journal of Systematic Theology, Harvard Theological Review, Pro Ecclesia, as well as more popular pieces in Modern Reformation and Lutheran Forum. He also serves as Lutheran Forum’s associate editor. Most recently, Małysz has been the author of “Martin Luther’s Trinitarian Hermeneutic of Freedom,” in the Oxford Research Encyclopedia of Martin Luther, and has contributed to the Annotated Luther series. Before coming to Beeson, Małysz was a Lilly Fellow and Lecturer in Theology at Valparaiso University in Valparaiso, Indiana. He is an ordained Lutheran pastor.
