This is the webpage of Steven Nemes, obviously still being developed. Here I will include information about my scholarly research, a blog to which I will occasionally post, and other materials which may be of interest to any visitor.
It would be well to include some sort of autobiographical information about myself. I ceaselessly study philosophy and theology. For the moment, I am an adjunct professor at Grand Canyon University in Phoenix, Arizona and, beginning in September of 2017, a doctoral student at Fuller Theological Seminary. I will be studying with Prof. Oliver Crisp.
The title of this webpage communicates my intellectual approach: fides quaerens intellectum, “faith seeking understanding.” I am passionate about theology and I love to study philosophy, but my greatest concern is to be a committed, faithful adherent of that “faith handed down once for all to the saints” (Jude 3).
Though I was born in the United States, my family is from Cluj-Napoca, Romania and I am fluent in Romanian. I am interested in extending my scholarly work into the Romanian context, as well, by interacting with Romanian intellectuals and academics.
Principally my research interests are Christian theology, philosophy, and the intersection of the two. Some of my favorite theologians include Origen, St. Catherine of Siena, Joseph Ratzinger, and Dumitru Stăniloae. I have written on topics such as the theological-epistemological role of tradition, intercessory prayer, and universal salvation. A list of my academic accomplishments is available on the curriculum vitae page.
For fun, I enjoy watching Seattle Seahawks football and listening to Pat Metheny Group.
