Professor awarded National Endowment for the Humanities Fellowship
St. Bonaventure University theology professor Oleg Bychkov, Ph.D., has been awarded a national fellowship that will significantly advance work in the areas of the history of medieval philosophy and theology.
Bychkov, professor of theology and former department chair, won a one-year National Endowment for the Humanities Fellowship to continue his edition-translation of the student report (version “A”) of John Duns Scotus’ (1265-1308) Parisian Lectures on Peter Lombard’s Sentences, to be published by the Franciscan Institute Press.
The project was started in the late 1990s by the late Fr. Allan Wolter, O.F.M., a foremost North American scholar of Duns Scotus. The project was continued in the early 2000s by Bychkov, first in his role as an assistant and collaborator of Fr. Wolter, and after 2003 on his own. Read more.
