Theology Department (Historical Theology)
Mickey L. Mattox (Ph.D., Duke University). I am a historical theologian with primary expertise in Martin Luther and the Reformations of the sixteenth century, and a secondary proficiency in ecumenical theology. My books include:
Defender of the Most Holy Matriarchs: Martin Luther’s Interpretation of the Women of Genesis in the Enarrationes in Genesin, 1535-1545 (Leiden: Brill, 2003) The Substance of the Faith: Doctrinal Theology in the Tradition of Martin Luther (Minneapolis: Fortress, 2008), with Denis Bielfeldt and Paul Hinlicky Changing Churches: An Orthodox, Catholic, and Lutheran Theological Conversation (Grand Rapids: Eerdmans, 2012), with A.G. Roeber Iohannes Oecolampadius: An Exposition of Genesis, Reformation Texts with Translations (Milwaukee: Marquette University Press, 2013)
In 2017 I served as Associate Editor on the international team of scholars that produced the 3-volume Oxford Encyclopedia of Martin Luther (Oxford University Press)
Expected in late-2019: Luther at Leipzig: Martin Luther, the Leipzig Debate, and the Reformations of the Sixteenth Century (Leiden: Brill), co-edited with Jonathan Mumme and Richard Serina
I am presently at work on a study of cosmology in Luther’s worldview, tentatively entitled From Chaos to Cosmos: Martin Luther’s Catholic Worldview (Grand Rapids: Baker Academic).
I am Deputy Editor of Reformation & Renaissance Review, and Associate Editor of Pro Ecclesia. I have also published many articles and book chapters on Martin Luther. And I am a member of the Society for Reformation Studies (Cambridge), the Sixteenth Century Studies Society, the North American Luther Forum, and the International Luther Congress.
At Marquette I enjoy teaching undergraduate students, especially “Foundations in Theology” (Theo 1001) and “Theology in the Writings of C.S. Lewis” (Theo 3230).
At the graduate level I teach both required MA courses and PhD-level seminars. I also supervise graduate research projects in Reformation theology, especially Martin Luther. I welcome inquiries from prospective graduate students interested in these topics.
