Estrada teaches courses in historical theology and Church history, with dual specialization in early and medieval Christianity. In his teaching and research, he seeks to explore how and why in its two millennia of existence the Christian tradition has been understood and appropriated in different ways. His current research project investigates one aspect of this diverse appropriation by tracing the ways in which Paul’s statements about salvation were understood from the early Church to the Reformation. Within this larger project, he is currently writing a book on Pelagius and his reception throughout Church history. In addition to translating numerous articles for Vatican City’s L’Osservatore Romano, Estrada also collaborated on two major literary projects in early Christian and medieval studies: the Encyclopedia of Ancient Christianity and The Monk’s Haggadah. Both will serve as helpful tools for students of early and medieval Christian history, thought, and culture. Whether in teaching or publication, Estrada views his theological vocation as a service to Christian unity and as a contribution to strengthening Christian education and scholarship in North America.
