CHURCH HISTORY AND HISTORICAL THEOLOGY

Kari Kloos "History as Witness: Augustine‘s Interpretation of the History of Israel in Contra Faustum and De Trinitate" In Augustine and History. Lanham, Md.: Lexington: 2008 : 31-51

Augustine‘s anti-Manichean writings indicate a growing appreciation for the history of Israel as a witness to the one God. In particular, his exegetical response in the massive Contra Faustum demonstrates how a more serious engagement with the history of Israel shaped his theology.

CHURCH HISTORY AND HISTORICAL THEOLOGY

Kari Kloos Christ, Creation, and the Vision of God: Augustine’s Transformation of Early Christian Theophany Interpretation., Bible in Ancient Christianity 7 Leiden: Brill 2011

Explores the theological underpinnings of ancient Christian theophany interpretation regarding polemic and the formation of Christian identity, the relationship between vision and spiritual transformation, and theological claims about knowing God through creation. Argues that Augustine‘s challenge to traditional claims that Christ appeared in the Old Testament theophanies demonstrates the critical and creative capacity of early Christian authors to adapt and transform exegetical traditions.

CHURCH HISTORY AND HISTORICAL THEOLOGY

Kari Kloos "Living in Paradox: Female Identity in Early and Medieval Christianity" In Journal of Lutheran Ethics. vol. 7, no. 7, July 2006 http://www.elca.org/What-We-Believe/Social-Issues/Journal-of-Lutheran-Ethics/Issues/July-2007/Living-in-Paradox-Female-Identity-in-Early-and-Medieval-Christianity.aspx
