Igumen Alexander Golitzin

Igumen Alexander Golitzin is a priest and monk of the Orthodox Church in America.


Alexander Golitzin (b. 1948) is a Patristics scholar and Professor of Theology at Marquette University in Milwaukee, Wisconsin. He earned his M.Div. at St. Vladimir's Seminary in Crestwood, New York, and his D.Phil. in Theology at Oxford University (1980). He wrote his dissertation on Dionysius the Areopagite under the direction of Bishop Kallistos Ware.

Father Alexander's research concerns the beginnings of Christian mystical and ascetical traditions, and their subsequent developments in the Greek- and Syriac-speaking East, with a particular interest in continuities and parallels with, respectively, Second Temple Judaism and Rabbinic Judaism.
