Dr. Glazov is a Senior Fellow of the St. Paul Center for Biblical Theology and a professor of Biblical studies in Seton Hall University, South Orange. He earned a master’s degree and doctorate in Jewish studies in the Greco-Roman world from Oxford University, England. His published works include a doctoral dissertation, “The ‘Bridling of the Tongue’ and the ‘Opening of the Mouth’ in Biblical Prophecy” and articles on the Book of Job, Vladmir Solovyov, and biblical anthropology in Vetus Testamentum, Communio, and for the Linacre Centre.
At Seton Hall, Dr. Glazov’s classes include Introduction to Johannine and Pauline Literature, Jewish Roots of Christian Spirituality, New Testament Greek I and II and Wisdom Literature and Psalms. A specialist in Old Testament studies and Second Temple literature, he is currently completing three books: Brothers in Hope: Models of Judaism in Catholic Perspective (Notre Dame), The Lord’s Prayer, the Hail Mary, the Glory Be and the Sign of the Cross, and an annotated translation of and commentary on Vladimir Solovyov’s writings on Judaism.
Dr. Glazov’s most recent conference presentations focus on the Old Testament background of John’s Gospel and the Lord’s Prayer. During his Princeton appearance, he will discuss the Jewish roots of the Catholic faith, how the Old Testament can be read within the context of Jesus’ coming and the bridge between the Old and New Testaments in light of his Easter Resurrection.
