    Dr. Aguzzi’s primary research interests are in the field of comparative theology and interreligious dialogue. Specifically, Aguzzi has done extensive research on the question of “supersessionism,” i.e., whether the Church has replaced Israel in God’s dealings with humanity, and specifically in salvation history. Dr. Aguzzi has explored the fields of eschatology and ecclesiology to find various solutions to the strained relationships between Christians and Jews. Aguzzi’s studies have focused extensively on Post Vatican II calls within the Roman Catholic tradition to forge a new dialogue and way forward regarding both Jewish and Christian eschatological claims. He earned his M.Div from Princeton Theological Seminary in Princeton, NJ, and his Ph.D. from Duquesne University in Pittsburgh, PA. Dr. Aguzzi has a book forthcoming on the topic of supersessionism, which will be published by Ashgate Publishing Company.

    In the scholarly literature, John Locke (1632–1704) features as a formative influence on Newman’s philosophical thought. What usually gets highlighted, for example in the Essay in Aid of a Grammar of Assent, are Newman’s criticism of Locke’s notion of degreed assent and his call for a broader and more nuanced account of the rationality of religious belief. However, some have argued that the Grammar largely focuses on the psychological conditions of religious belief. […]
