Biography: 
Dr. Kent Wallace completed a bachelor’s degree at the State University of New York in his hometown of Oswego, NY, where he concentrated in history, philosophy and anthropology. After completing a master’s degree in religious studies at Providence College, he earned a doctorate in theology at Duquesne University in Pittsburgh, where he also taught moral theology. Professor Wallace has taught Catholic theology at the high school level, philosophy and theology courses in online degree programs, and undergraduate philosophy courses at Bridgewater State University in Massachusetts. While his academic interests in general span Catholic theology and philosophy throughout the history of Western civilization, he has a special interest in the thought of St. Anselm of Canterbury, as well as in the many intriguing topics studied in Scholastic theology and philosophy. He has presented papers at scholarly conferences on predestination, divine foreknowledge and freedom in the thought of St. Anselm, and on St. Augustine’s understanding of time and eternity.
