Professor Joshua Hordern




I was born and raised in the Lombard Prealps. I hold a master’s degree in Philosophy (Hons) from the University of Padua and a Diploma in Moral Sciences (Hons) from the Galilean School of Higher Education. Part of the coursework towards those degrees was completed at Boston University. I am also a Middle Reader at the Canterbury Institute (Oxford). My current research focuses on bringing Augustine’s political thought back to the forefront of Christian public engagement. 


Academic Interests: 

  • Augustine of Hippo: political theology; contemporary political Augustinianism.
  • Early Christianity: ethos and models of citizenship.
  • Political theory: political virtues; Catholic Social Thought; Community Organising.
