Dr. Adam DeVille 

Adam DevilleAdam DeVille's teaching, writing, and editorial work focus on the Christian East (both Byzantine and non-Byzantine, both Catholic and Orthodox), with an especial focus on issues of ecclesiology and ecumenism--particularly the papacy. He is the editor of the international trilingual Logos: A Journal of Eastern Christian Studies, North America's oldest journal of its kind which publishes leading peer-reviewed scholarship from across the globe.

Dr. DeVille is the author of Orthodoxy and the Roman Papacy, released in March 2011 by the University of Notre Dame Press, and the author of over 100 articles and reviews in dozens of journals around the world. He has two books under contract:  the first, The Future of Orthodoxy in North America should appear from Notre Dame Press in 2014; the second, with Routledge Press, is an edited collection, Eastern Christian Encounters with Islam and should be in print in late 2014.  He is also at work on an edited collection about married Catholic priests, and a monograph about asceticism.  He teaches a range of  theology and religion courses, including those on iconography and the encounter between Eastern Christian and Muslim communities from the 7th century to today.  He also maintains a blog entitled "Eastern Christian Books."
