Piotr Małysz joined the faculty of Beeson Divinity School in 2011 and teaches church history and doctrine. His research interests lie at the intersection of historical and systematic theology, modern European intellectual history, philosophy, and social theory. Malysz is the author of Trinity, Freedom and Love: An Engagement with the Theology of Eberhard Jüngel (T&T Clark 2012), and co-editor of the forthcoming Luther Refracted: The Reformer’s Ecumenical Legacy (Fortress Press 2015). He has published articles in Modern Theology, Scottish Journal of Theology, International Journal of Systematic Theology, Harvard Theological Review, Pro Ecclesia, as well as more popular pieces in Modern Reformation and Lutheran Forum. Malysz is also the author of a chapter analyzing doctrinal reception among early Lutherans in the forthcoming Oxford Handbook to the Reception History of Christian Theology. Before coming to Beeson, Malysz was a Lilly Fellow and Lecturer in Theology at Valparaiso University in Valparaiso, Indiana. He is an ordained Lutheran pastor.
