Michael Remedios Grigoni

Visiting Assistant Professor of Theology and Roman Catholic Studies, Lexington Theological Seminary

Michael Remedios Grigoni joined the faculty of Lexington Theological Seminary in 2020. Originally from the Pacific Northwest, he earned his B.A. in Philosophy from Western Washington University, his M.A. in Ethnomusicology from the University of Washington, and his M.T.S. in Theology from Harvard Divinity School. Prior to pursuing doctoral studies, he served as Pastoral Assistant of Liturgy and Music at Church of the Assumption in Bellingham, Washington. He received his Ph.D. in Religion from Duke University.

Dr. Grigoni’s research and teaching interests center on Christian ethics, political theology, and ethnographic theology. His dissertation, titled “The Gun in US American Life: An Ethnographic Christian Ethics,” develops a Christian ethics of handgun ownership that emerges from ethnographic fieldwork he carried out with Christian handgun owners and Christian anti-gun violence activists in North Carolina. His work appears in Ecclesial Practices and Practical Theology, and he is currently co-editing a special issue of the Journal of Moral Theology on guns and Christian ethics while revising his dissertation for publication.

As a Roman Catholic and person of Mexican descent, Grigoni’s teaching interests also include Catholic theology, lived religion, and Latinx theology. To this end, he is currently authoring a book chapter on ethnographic theology and Latinx theology for a volume titled ¡Damos Testimonio! Latinx Voices for the Common Good (Georgetown University Press).
