David Decosimo is Assistant Professor in the School of Theology and the Graduate Division of Religion at Boston University. He works at the intersection of religion, ethics, and politics. His prize-winning first book, Ethics as a Work of Charity: Thomas Aquinas and Pagan Virtue was published in 2014. His research spans medieval Christianity and Islam, moral philosophy and theology, theory and philosophy of religion, and political philosophy. He is currently working on two books. One, an interpretation of the centuries-long, global tradition of Christian ethical thought, is nearing completion. The other, No Lord but God: Domination and Freedom in Christianity and Islam, elucidates the ways these two traditions have conceived and realized political freedom and advances a dialectical, pragmatist vision of liberty.
