    Matthew Levering is associate professor of theology and director of the Graduate Program in Theology at Ave Maria University in Naples, Florida. He has been at Ave Maria College since 2000. Professor Levering will enjoy the Myser Fellowship during the 2006-07 academic year. During this time, he plans to pursue a book projects tentatively entitled, Temples of the Holy Spirit: Reclaiming a Jewish Theology of the Body, in which he looks to argue that a rejection of the Jewish understanding of the body contributed powerfully to the confusion about the human body in contemporary Christian ethics. Professor Levering is the author of three monographs: Christ’s Fulfillment of Torah and Temple: Salvation According to Thomas Aquinas, as well as Scripture and Metaphysics: Aquinas and the Renewal of Trinitarian Theology and Sacrifice, and Community: Jewish Offering and Christian Eucharist. With Michael Dauphinais, he is also the co-author of Knowing the Love of Christ: An Introduction to the Theology of St. Thomas Aquinas and Holy People, Holy Land: A Theological Introduction to the Bible. He has edited On the Priesthood: Classic and Contemporary Texts and On Christian Dying: Classic and Contemporary Texts, and co-edited Reading John with St. Thomas Aquinas: Theological Exegesis and Speculative Theology. He has organized three major theological conferences, serves as associate editor of Sapientia Press, and as co-editor of the English version of the international philosophical and theological journal, Nova et Vetera.
