Biography

Dr. LaNave was born and raised in St. Cloud, Minnesota, but has lived in the Washington, D.C. area since 1991, when he came to Catholic University to begin a doctoral program in theology. After stints in publishing at the New Catholic Encyclopedia and The Catholic University of America Press, he joined the Pontifical Faculty of the Immaculate Conception as a full-time faculty member in 2006, and was promoted to full professor in 2014. His special expertise is medieval theology and fundamental theology. He is the author of Through Holiness to Wisdom: The Nature of Theology according to St. Bonaventure (Rome: Istituto storico dei cappuccini, 2005), and scholarly articles on Bonaventure and/or Aquinas in Theological Studies, Franciscan Studies, and The Thomist, as well as essays on “Bonaventure on the Spiritual Senses,” in The Perception of God: The Spiritual Senses in the Christian Tradition (Cambridge Univ. Press, 2012) and “Bonaventure’s Theological Method,” in A Companion to Bonaventure (Brill, 2013). Since 1996 he has served the Pontifical Faculty as managing editor of The Thomist, the quarterly journal of philosophy and theology published by the Dominican Fathers, and is the series Editor for The Fathers of the Church: Mediaeval Continuation, published by CUA Press. He is working on a book on the relationship between theology and holiness.
