Curriculum Vitae:


Lucas Scott Wright is a PhD student in the department of Religious Studies at the University of California at Santa Barbara. His current research focuses generally on modern Jewish thought and European history, thought, and culture – particularly 19th and 20th century Europe in relation to contemporary trends in continental philosophy and medieval and renaissance mysticism. His dissertation project is a study of the impact of Christian Kabbalah and F.W.J. Schelling’s Spätphilosophie on Franz Rosenzweig’s Der Stern der Erlösung and his notion of Neue Denken, and the question concerning the boundaries between interreligious dialogue and supersessionism. His research languages include German, French, and [in progress]  Modern Hebrew, Latin, and Mittelhochdeutsch.
