Andrew Jones is the director of Catholic products at Logos Bible Software. An expert on the history of the papacy, he holds a PhD in medieval history from St. Louis University. Andrew taught history at Lindenwood University and St. Louis University before coming to work for Logos.
Andrew’s research and writing focuses on the development of the papal office and of its theological underpinnings. Andrew is an expert on the construction of the Roman administration, of the canon law, and of the organizational structure of the Church during the crucial centuries of the High Middle Ages. This expertise includes the Crusades, the Inquisition, and the development of the College of Cardinals—all essential topics for an understanding of the development of the papacy. Andrew has done considerable writing on the problem of a vacant Holy See and on the development of the conclave as the mechanism for the election of a new pope. His expertise extends beyond institutional developments, however, and into the theological and philosophical movements that complemented them.
Andrew has published several articles on the papacy, has presented numerous papers at academic conferences, and is in the final stages of revising his book on the relationship between Pope Clement IV and King Louis IX. He is also writing a book on the history of the problem of Church and State during the Middle Ages.
