Short biography
Euan Cameron is the Henry Luce III Professor of Reformation Church History at the Department of Religion at Columbia University in 2002. Since 2004 he has been Academic Dean at Union Theological Seminary. From 1979-86 he held a position at All Soul's College, Oxford and from 1985-2002 was based at the University of Newcastle-Upon-Tyne.
Euan Cameron was educated at Eton and Oxford, where he graduated BA in History in the First Class in 1979 and received the D.Phil. in 1982. From 1979 to 1985 he was a junior research fellow at All Souls College, Oxford. In 1985 he moved to the University of Newcastle upon Tyne, where he worked in the Department of History for 17 years, receiving promotions to Reader (1992) and full Professor (1997) and serving as Head of Department. He was awarded a Leverhulme Research Fellowship in 1996/7. In 2002 he was appointed as the first Henry Luce III Professor of Reformation Church History at Union Theological Seminary in New York, with a concurrent appointment in the Department of Religion in Columbia University. From 2004 to 2010 he also served as Academic Vice-President in the seminary. During 2010/11, while on sabbatical leave, he held a fellowship at All Souls College, Oxford.

Prof. Cameron’s scholarly work analyses the role and transformations of religion in European society in the later Middle Ages and Reformation periods. His academic research first began in the area of religious dissent, especially the Waldensian heresy: he has published two books on that subject, The Reformation of the Heretics (1984) and Waldenses: Rejections of Holy Church in Medieval Europe (2000) and is editing a collaborative volume on this subject, contracted to Brill Publishers, in collaboration with Professor Marina Benedetti of the University of Milan.

In 1991 he published his analytical history of the Protestant Reformation movements in Europe, The European Reformation, which remains in print and widely used. A fully revised and updated second edition of this book appeared in 2012. He also investigates the relationship between theology and popular belief through the debates over “superstition” from the Middle Ages to the Enlightenment: in this area he has published Enchanted Europe: Superstition, Reason and Religion 1250-1750 (hardback 2010; paperback 2011). This work reviews how the debates over “superstition” helped to define the nature and boundaries of religious belief through several centuries of dramatic change.
