Assistant Professor of Theology
"Amy Brown Hughes received her Ph.D. in historical theology with an emphasis in early Christianity and is the co-author of Christian Women in the Patristic World: Their Influence, Authority and Legacy in the Second Through Fifth Centuries. Dr. Hughes previously worked with Wheaton College’s Center for Early Christian Studies, which encourages dialogue about the interplay between our modern world and early Christian texts. A similar theme—how early Christian writers remain integral voices in today’s conversations—runs through her research. In considering how theology can be relevant to modern culture, Hughes notes that her students are hungry for an understanding of theology that informs life outside of the classroom. Her classes frequently engage theological principles in world issues, such as immigration, race and gender."
