Adam David Wert is a doctoral candidate at Princeton Theological Seminary. He holds a master’s degree from Harvard Divinity School and a bachelor’s degree from Grinnell College. His research centers on how theological texts and practices form their readers, with special attention to the social and political consequences of apophatic language.

His work engages modern Christian theology as it intersects with continental philosophy, political theory, modern science, and popular culture. His dissertation examines and critiques the apophatic and dispossessed aspect of Rowan Williams’ work, drawing attention both to its Hegelian and Christological roots, and to its mode of social engagement.
