Dr. Suzanne Hequet

Professor Emerita

Dr. Suzanne Hequet began teaching full-time at Concordia University in August 2012. Prior to that, she taught at Concordia College, Moorhead, MN, and St. John’s University and School of Theology, Collegeville, MN.

Hequet has a passion for Church History, in particular, the 16th century Reformation. This period marked the division of the Roman Catholic Church, a topic that Hequet researched in her book, The 1541 Colloquy at Regensburg: In Pursuit of Church Unity (2009). Hequet also had an original translation of Luther’s Proceedings at Augsburg, 1518, with an introduction, annotations and footnotes, published in The Annotated Luther Vol. 1: The Roots of Reform (2015).

“I am truly blessed to be able to teach church history. I learn from my students! And my study and teaching continually enriches my personal faith-life.”
