We have heard that Marilyn McCord Adams, professor, author, philosopher and Episcopal priest has died. Adams was a regular contributor to this site and thoughtful explorer of the human relationship with God; she will be deeply missed.
Her teaching and research in philosophy centered on medieval philosophy and philosophy of religion; her books include William Ockham (2 volumes) and Some Later Medieval Theories of the Eucharist: Thomas Aquinas, Giles of Rome, Duns Scotus, and William Ockham (one focus of which is the metaphysics of body). She explored medieval theories of causality and how medieval doctrines of revealed theology provoked philosophical insights and renovations. She was also interested inthe problem of evil and wrote two books on the subject–Horrendous Evils and the Goodness of God and Christ and Horrors: the Coherence of Christology.
