Zane Chu

Zane Chu’s areas of teaching and research are in systematic and historical theology. His doctoral work studied the thought of Thomas Aquinas on charity in its Scriptural foundations and Trinitarian and Christological dimensions. Ongoing work explores the practical implications of Aquinas’ thought on charity both in relation to medieval theories of language and sacramental theology and in dialogue with contemporary questions of reconciliation and decolonization.
