Gerardo Rodriguez

Assistant Professor of Theology and Religious Studies

B.A., Simpson College
M.A., St. John’s University
Ph.D., St. Louis University

Programs: Theology and Religious Studies

Gerardo Rodríguez earned his Ph.D. at St. Louis University in Early Christianity with a focus on Origen of Alexandria. He is originally from Puerto Rico and has lived throughout the Midwest. Gerardo’s research currently focuses on stoic ideas of phantasia in the works of Philo and Origen and pedagogical strategies for topics on race, identity and theology. His research interests include Origen, hermeneutics, Latina/o theology and pedagogy in theological studies.

Having earned his B.A. at a small, liberal arts college, Gerardo is excited to connect with students at St. Norbert and accompany them in their educational journey.

Gerardo’s courses currently cover the topics of race, theology and biblical interpretations. He is committed to developing constructive theologies centered on human dignity and the lived experiences of marginalized communities. To this end, his pedagogy builds upon critical race theory and pedagogy, and aims to develop effective counter-narratives that bring diverse communities into dialogue to advance the work of reconciliation and justice.
