Giles Waller joined CIP in September 2014 as Research Associate to the Director.  Giles read Theology and Religious Studies at Peterhouse, Cambridge and has a particular interest in the theological reception of Greek tragedy in comparison with Martin Luther’s theology of the cross.

Additionally, he assists the Director of CIP, Professor David Ford, in his research and also handles correspondence related to Professor Ford’s work on CIP projects. Giles read Theology and Religious Studies at Peterhouse, Cambridge, where he also completed an MPhil. His doctoral research, also at Peterhouse, focused on the borderlands of Christian doctrine, literature, and philosophy, looking at the theological reception of Greek tragedy, with a particular comparative interest in Martin Luther’s theology of the cross. In 2011, along with Kevin Taylor, Giles edited a collection that brought together theologians and literary scholars, Christian Theology and Tragedy: Theologians, Tragic Literature and Tragic Theory (Ashgate), to which he contributed an essay on the role of tragedy in the work of Donald MacKinnon.
