Biography

BA (Belfast), BD (St Andrews), Dr theol. (Münster), DLitt (St Andrews), DD (h.c. Belfast)

Growing up in Ireland, it was not hard for me to have an awareness of religious history, so that it was natural enough to wonder how 'varieties of Christianity', especially conflicting ones, and even Christianity itself, came about.  I subscribe to the opinion of Cicero that without good knowledge of history, we remain infants.  I had the good luck to have had excellent history teachers at school.  In my Arts degree I specialized in history, and again benefited from having inspiring teachers.

Subsequently I studied theology at St Andrews, but it was not until my final year that Church History in particular caught my imagination.  Thereafter I had the good fortune to be able to pursue doctoral studies in Reformation Studies in Germany and France under some leading figures in the field.  I developed a special interest in the Strasbourg Reformer Martin Bucer, whose ecumenical and moderate approach to religious controversy appealed to me. 

After that, I worked for two years in the Reformation Research Institute in Geneva under the inimitable Pierre Fraenkel.  The skills acquired in these early years have enabled me to do extensive research in aspects of Reformation and Renaissance studies.  And partly due to WHC Frend in my time lecturing at Glasgow, I have also ventured into Early Church and Patristic eras, particularly as perceived in Reformation times.
