Philip G. DavisBiography
Philip Davis grew up in Hamilton, Ontario and did his university degrees there at McMaster (B.A. 1972, M.A. 1976, Ph.D. 1979). He began majoring in French and German, and switched to Religious Studies in his third year, with a specialty in New Testament. His doctoral thesis, written under the guidance of Ben F. Meyer and E. P. Sanders, was on the Gospel of Mark and what it teaches about the nature and person of Jesus. He also did a Minor in Hindu Religious History under David Kinsley.
He has been a professor of Religious Studies at UPEI since 1979. Since coming to UPEI, he has taught in the biblical area, but also world religions, Judaism, Christianity, Islam, Hinduism, occultism, and New Religious Movements. He pioneered the development of UPEI’s Asian Studies programme, and chaired the Department of Religious Studies from 1985 to 1991 and again from 1997 to 2003.
His wife Catrin is a social worker and they are parishioners of the Cathedral Church of St. Peter (Anglican). His other interests include family history, military history, the PEI Welsh Society, and their four children and two grandchildren.
