me

I am Andrew Gertner Belfield, a theologian who specializes in medieval theology, christology, and franciscan theology. I teach at St. Bonaventure University as an assistant professor in the department of theology and franciscan studies. I say a bit about how I understand my role as a teacher here, if you’re interested; as for my research, you can look at my research page or my full curriculum vitae. I also serve as book review editor for Franciscan Studies.

For more of what’s capturing my interest at the moment, see my now page.

I earned a B.A. at St. Bonaventure University, where I received departmental awards in theology and philosophy and was named the Ideal Bonaventure Man. I then pursued an M.T.S. at Loyola University Maryland; my thesis on the motive for the incarnation according to franciscan scholastic theologian John Duns Scotus won me the Award for Research in Theology. More recently, I completed a Ph.D. at Boston College. My dissertation, titled “Foundations of scholastic christology in the Summa halensis,” was defended in October 2021.
