Elliptical Theology: Revelation, Theology, and Human Experience

  In-person Event | Presenter: Bill Cahoy, Ph.D.

Drawing on the reality of the Incarnation and the geometry of the ellipse, we will reflect on revelation as the Word of God and work of the Spirit; the unavoidable role of human experience, thought, and language in receiving, expressing, and understanding that revelation; and what this means for our theology, doctrine, liturgy, practice, and spirituality.

Dr. Cahoy completed his master’s and doctoral work at Yale University. He is a retired professor (1990-2021) and Dean Emeritus of Saint John’s School of Theology and Seminary (1999-2015). Now retired from teaching in the classroom, Cahoy spends most of his time with family. However, Cahoy has a deep love for theology and teaching and can’t help but continue sharing his expertise with the Saint John’s community and the School of Theology and Seminary’s Theology Day participants.
