Professor Tilley works in philosophical theology and philosophy of religion. Professor Tilley’s current research interests concern particular topics in systematic theology. He uses an eclectic philosophical approach focused on the nature and rationality of faith, Christology as a practical discipline, the problems of evil, the particular relationships of history, theology and faith, and the Catholic tradition.
His current courses are Faith and Critical Reason and Christology. Professor Tilley’s teaching spans a variety of fields and areas of interest, including religious pluralism, Christ, philosophical theology, and method in theology. He regularly offers the required first-year theology course “Faith and Critical Reason” and is active in the supervision of Ph.D. students.
