Euan Grant is the first holder of the newly-revived Gifford Fellowship in Natural Theology at the School of Divinity. In this post, he continues research into theological anthropology and its relationship to scientific treatment of human nature. Previous research focused on questions of original sin, in conversation with the mediaeval tradition, modern theologies (both Radical Orthodoxy and what might be called the ?neo-scholastic? revival), and questions raised by the natural sciences. Having spent the past four years working fin the interpretation and re-appropriation of Thomas Aquinas, he is expanding his project to take into account pressing questions of the relation of ?the biological? and ?the human? in Christian theological understandings of human beings. 

Mr Grant completed his doctoral research in St Andrews in early 2019, following an MLitt in Systematic and Historical Theology in 2014/15, and a BA in Oxford, examined in 2013. Outside the academy, he has worked in churches in a variety of stipendiary and voluntary positions, and is currently a member of the Vestry and theological representative of the congregation at All Saints? Church, St Andrews.
