Catholic University of America

Father José Granados, D.C.J.M., is assistant professor of theology and philosophy of the body at the Pontifical John Paul II Institute for Studies on Marriage and Family at The Catholic University of America in Washington, D.C.

Father Granados received his doctorate in theology from the Pontifical Gregorian University, with a dissertation on the Christology of St. Justin Martyr (published in Analecta Gregoriana, Rome 2005).

He has published several articles on the theology of the Fathers of the Church (St. Justin Martyr, St. Augustine), as well as a translation from Latin into Spanish of the Commentary on Matthew’s Gospel by a 4th century bishop, St. Cromace of Aquileia.

Fr. Granados’s current research focuses on how the idea of the salvation of the flesh (salus carnis) held by the Fathers of the second century (Justin Martyr, Irenaeus, Tertullian) can convey to us new insights into the problems of contemporary theology. 

Father Granados is also assistant professor of Patrology and Systematic Theology and has a master of science degree in engineering from the Pontifical University of Comillas, Madrid.
