Historical Note

Biographical/Historical note

W. D. (William David) Davies was born in Wales, United Kingdom, and educated at the University of Wales (B.A.from Cardiff, 1934; B.D. from Brecken, 1938) and Cambridge University (B.A. 1940, M.A. 1942). Davies received his doctorate (D.D. operis causa 1948) from the University of Wales.

In 1941, Davies was ordained into the Congregational Church at Fowlmere, England. He taught at Yorkshire United College, Bradford, Yorkshire, from 1946 to 1950 before moving to Duke for five years as a professor of Biblical theology (1950 to 1955). From 1955 through 1959 he was professor of religion at Princeton University, where he helped start the graduate program in Religion there. He was then appointed Edward Robinson Professor of Biblical Theology at Union Theological Seminary in New York, as well as adjunct professor at Columbia University, from 1959 to 1966. He rejoined the Duke faculty in 1966 as George Washington Ivey Professor of Advanced Studies and Research in Christian Origins. He stayed until his retirement in 1981. He then became the Bradford Professor at Texas Christian University in Fort Worth, Texas and in 1986-87 he was a Fellow of Clare Hall, Cambridge, UK. He also taught at the University of California at Berkeley and at the University of Strasboroug, France.

Davies held numerous fellowships and received several awards and honors. He was a Fellow of the American Academy of Arts and Sciences, a Corresponding Fellow of the British Academy, (from which he also received the Burkitt Medal in Biblical Studies), an Honorary Fellow of Cambridge University's Fitzwilliam College, a Fellow of the Bellagio Center, Italy, and Fellow of the American Academy of Jewish Research. He was a recipient of two Guggenheim Fellowships and received honorary doctorates from the University of St. Andrews, the Pacific School of Religion, Uppsala University and the University of Wales, the latter being an honorary doctorate in literature. Davies also served as honorary president of the Society for Biblical Literature and President of the Society of New Testament Studies (1976), which met in the United States for the first time that year at Duke University. He was a member of the executive committee of the World Congress of Jewish Studies, Jerusalem (1965).

Among his published works are Paul and Rabbinic Judaism (1948), The Setting of the Sermon on the Mount (1966), and The Gospel and the Land: Early Christianity and Jewish Territorial Doctrine (1974). His popular Invitation to the New Testament (1966) was a selection of the Book of the Month Club. He was also co-editor of the Cambridge History of Judaism and along with a former student published an International Critical Commentary on Matthew (3 vols).

W.D. Davies married Eurwen Llewelyn in 1942 in Wales. The couple had one daughter, Rachel M. Davies. W.D. Davies died June 12, 2001 in Durham, NC, and Eurwen Davies died on January 16, 2002.
