Duke University has named Anglican priest-theologian SamuelWells of England the new dean of Duke Chapel, effective in August. Wells, 39, a specialist in theological ethics who described his outlook as “generous orthodoxy,” has been serving as priest-in-charge of a parish in an underprivileged area of Cambridge, England. Most chapel deans at Duke have been Methodist ministers, as was WilliamH.Willimon, who was elected a United Methodist bishop last year. However, services at Duke Chapel are ecumenical in nature, noted a Duke news release. Wells’s wife, priest and theologian JoBaileyWells, will become the school’s director of Anglican studies.
