Father Andrew Louth is a priest of the Russian Orthodox Church and
Professor in the Department of Theology and Religion and Orthodox chaplain
at the University of Durham in Durham, England.


Andrew Louth is ordained a priest of the Russian Orthodox Patriarchal

Diocese of Sourozh in 2003 and serves a parish in Durham.
Fr. Louth's collegiate education was at the Universities of Cambridge and
Edinburgh where he studied Mathematics and Theology and prepared his
thesis which concerned Karl Barth. After graduation he taught early Christian
theology and patristics in the University of Oxford and early Medieval and
Byzantine history Goldsmiths College in the University of London.
Fr. Louth has been Professor of Patristic and Byzantine Studies at Durham
University since 1996. He teaches courses on the history and theology of the
Christian Church: an undergraduate module dealing with the impact of the
rise of Islam on mostly Greek Christianity in the eastern Mediterranean and a
Master of Arts module on the understanding of what it is to be human in early
Christian theology.
His interests in research lie mostly in the history of theology in the Greek
tradition, especially in periods later than what is usually studied in the
universities of England; that is, after the fifth century during the period of the
Byzantine Empire to 1453. He is also interested in later periods including the
modern period; that is the nineteenth century and later, where his research
includes Russian and Romanian Orthodox theology.
